Parents please discuss the importance of staying seated on bus at all times and addressing other students in a respectful and loving manner at all times. This will be greatly appreciated. Policy states that student(s) will not be allowed to ride the bus until the issue is resolved.

Thanks, Mr. Schoonhoven
