TRANSPORTATION: A special thanks to the USD 211 bus drivers and to the bus transportion director Jim Jackson for transporting our students in a safe and efficient manner. Your child(ren) are in safe hands with these dedicated people.
USD 211 employs four crossing guards who help insure that children crossing the highway are able to do so in a safe manner.
We should all be thankful that we have a great group of people helping our students be safe in their journey to and from school.
