We are sad to report that this year's ride along night has been canceled. We know this is something that families as well as our staff look forward to every year, so the decision was a difficult one to make.
Please keep an eye open for a special video from your transportation team that will be posted soon with all the information we would normally go over during our time together.
Thank you for understanding.

We understand there are a lot of questions about what school will look like for students choosing the face-to-face school option this fall. Your child's safety as well as the safety of our staff continue to be a top priority as we prepare to reopen school buildings. Our district will follow the Governor's Return to School Roadmap and comply with all of the Required safety protocols. In addition, our goal is to comply with as many of the Strongly Recommended and Recommended safety protocols as possible which are also outlined in the Roadmap. Michigan is currently in Phase 4 of reopening, therefore, the guidelines we are currently following for reopening are pages 21-36. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed to keep all students and staff safe, while continuing to meet the schooling needs of our community.
