Bus routes available on website

In the past, BH-BL bus routes were published in the district calendar. However, when the calendar goes to print the bus routes are typically still being finalized and often change after the calendar has been printed. To ensure we share accurate information with parents, the bus routes have been removed from the printed calendar but are available on the transporation webpage. [BUS ROUTES] Questions about bus routes can be directed to the Transportation Department at 399-9141, ext. 83524.
