Reminder that no student, not on the bus route, may ride the bus without a parent/guardian note to the driver or the parent/guardian contacting Sheyanne Transport to make prior arrangements.
Please take time to remind students to be very careful walking/riding bike to and from school. Be sure to remind students to cross at crosswalks and to always watch for traffic. Those crossing main street (Hwy 25), be sure to cross at the lights. MS/HS/Adult drivers - be sure to go slow on the streets near the school (15 mph or less) and remember students/pedestrians have the right of way. I have been in contact with local law enforcement, and they will be periodically patrolling the area before and after school. Drivers always buckle up, even if traveling short distances. Do not text and drive!!!
Parents - Please, periodically take time to cover walk/bike safety with your child(ren) throughout the school year.
Thank You
Mr. Case
