Transportation will be strictly a single bus system. All K-12 students will be getting on the bus together and going to one of the elementary schools; then after dropping off K-4 students and picking up 5-12 town walkers, buses will proceed to the secondary complex. Those buses will depart Barrtyon at 7:40am, Mecosta at 7:38am, and Weidman at 7:35am.
Take home routes will have secondary students boarding the same bus that brougth them in, going back to the elementary buildings, loading K-4 students and then proceeding to the homes.
It is imperative that the atmosphere of the bus allows the bus driver to operate in a safe manor.
