How will your student get to school in 2022-23? #

Transportation planning is underway for the 2022-23 school year. All families are asked to update student transportation information for the coming year as early as possible, even if your student will attend school virtually. Please log into ParentVUE and check your home address and any alternative addresses, if applicable. If this information is expected to change between now and the beginning of the 2022-23 school year, you may wait until the change occurs to enter the information. Families will soon receive additional information about transportation and making sure student information is up-to-date in ParentVUE.
