Bus Route Information

For those students who ride the bus, there has been some confusion about which bus you get on. The buses have two numbers on them; the bus number and the route number. You need to be looking for the ROUTE NUMBER which is located on a black sign next to the bus door. Here is a picture to help you. If you are unsure please ask the bus driver or Mr. Macias.
