Request of Afternoon Car Riders
The administration and bus drivers would like to ask that afternoon car riders please be courteous and help us keep our line moving smoothly. If you are entering the car rider line from Mt. Vernon Church or from the Silk Hope Fire Department please periodically let traffic coming from the opposite direction make the left hand turn so that traffic will not get backed up, especially when school buses are involved. We appreciate your help and patience.
