“AT MY STOP, YOU STOP”
School Bus Safety Week October 20th through 24th. This year’s theme “AT MY STOP, YOU STOP” is a reminder to students and motorists about the dangers that exist outside the school bus. This slogan emphasizes how both students, and other motorists, should be aware of the correct procedures when approaching a school bus that has stopped to load or unload passengers.
Below are several links which will take you to sites that offer a large variety of information and activities to educate students, parents, school personnel and others about school bus safety. Utilizing these items, and others you may have like them, helps to make everyone aware of the roles they play in school bus safety.

Temporary loans to students should not be for more than one day. Cashier personnel will send student with tray to cafeteria manager to fill out meal loan form.
Money may not be borrowed to purchase special sales, a la carte or extra items during meal service time.
This school year, 2014-2015, there will be a locker rental fee of $2.00. The locker fee must be paid in advance of receiving the locker number and combination.
Science Department Supply Fee
Unfortunately, the decline in state and district funding to schools, and departments within schools, has coincided with the rising costs of laboratory materials in our economy. Therefore, the Science department is respectfully asking for a $5.00 lab donation from each student or family, as it has become increasingly hard to provide the type of materials to our students without the help of the Bruner community.
