Did you know that you can pay for busing if you live in an area that is not bused. There are obviously some restrictions. One of which is that you have to transport your child to and from an existing bus stop. The other is that once the upper limit of seating is reached, no more students will be added to a given bus route. Below is the Board policy on fee-based busing and the request form.
We are always interested to know both where we are succeeding and areas that need additional attention. Our desire is to provide both your child and you with a great school experience. Please feel free to call us or email anyone on the Glen Crest staff.
Any snow or emergency day that causes a day off changes the end of year schedule. Events such as eighth grade promotion could move forward for each day that we are not in session due to an emergency. Each emergency day off also causes the end of school to move foreward in the same way.
