Any Middle School or High School students staying after 9th period for academic support can take the 3:30 p.m. Elementary bus home. Students must get a bus pass from the Middle School or High School offices. 

5:30 p.m. Bus Schedule:
The 5:30 p.m. Late Bus departs the school grounds at approximately 5:35 p.m. and operates Monday through Friday. There are THREE buses that cover the 40-square-mile district. During the height of the sports practice seasons, there may be a good number of students utilizing these buses, which could mean a longer ride home. So please plan accordingly.

School Closing Information:
As the days grow shorter and the weather gets wetter or whiter, please dress appropriately for the bus stop and watch for school closings, delayed openings and early dismissals resulting from inclement weather or other situations.

The public will be notified via "Power Announcement" messaging and also through local media such as WIVB Channel 4, WKBW Channel 7 and WGRZ Channel 2. Local radio stations 97 Rock, Star 102.5, WYRK 106.5 and WBEN 107.7 will also have delays or closing alerts.
