In the Fall, we surveyed our community about bussing services. There was strong interest around the idea; however, actual interest would likely depend on routes, cost, and drop off/pick up times. We have been in communication with Diversified Transport about a running a pilot program in the Spring; however, given that we are embarking on a building expansion project in the Spring, we have decided to table this discussion until next year at this time. Please direct any of your questions or concerns to our Principal, Shane Nelson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
