Green Elementary handles all issues related to behavior of Green School students on the bus and any changes in address pickup.

If your child is not going to ride the bus on a particular day, parents need to let the office know at least 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day so we do not hold the bus up looking for your child. Please also let the office know if your child has signed up for an after school program. Thank you!
