The Bus How will I know which bus my child will take? - Bus Lists will be posted at the schools on the front doors, at Shaws and other supermarkets in Easton and in the Easton Journal the week prior to school starting. All students are eligible for free bus transportation. When will the bus pick up and drop off my child? - The Bus List Posting lists the group stops and the time the driver starts the route. You can note the time the older students are being picked up at the stop during the first week, but be prepared to arrive at the stop about 10 minutes early for pick up and drop off since the time it takes the driver to complete the route varies. Please be aware that kindergartners WILL NOT be dropped off without a parent or designee present. The child will be brought back to school instead.

Question Time! Which session will my child be in? You will be notified of your child’s session and teacher in early July. How big are the classes? Currently we have 1 section of half day kindergarten (13 students), and 5 sections of full day kindergarten with class sizes ranging from students. When does school begin? Kindergarten Open House will be Wednesday, September 4 from 9: :00. This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and for your child to see the classroom and get more comfortable before their first day. The first day of school for Kindergarten students will be Friday, September 6.
Question Time! (continued) How does parent vehicle drop off and pick up work? –Parents pull into the front loop between 8:45 - 9:00 for drop off. It is a live drop off. A faculty member will open the back door and help your child out of the car. On the first day (and even the first week or so) parents are welcome to park in the front lot and walk their child into school. –Pick up takes place on the far left side of the building (facing the front of the building). Teachers will walk their parent pick up students outside and wait until they see each parent before letting the children go. Parents park in the front lot and walk up to the side doors for pick up.
