  • A quick “Transportation Tip” about riding the Late Bus — If you’re ever planning to take the LATE BUS after school — you MUST have a signed bus pass for both ASP1 and 2.  If you do not have a pass — you will NOT be allowed to ride the late bus.  Again — the pass must be SIGNED for both ASP1 and 2 in order to ride the Late Bus.  See your grade-level administrator with any questions.
