Take the Bus!

We are finding that dismissal is taking longer than normal for parents driving their children to and from school. With hybrid students across all grades returning to the Cherry Crest building, we strongly encourage all eligible students to take the school bus! Visit the Cherry Crest website for details about having your child safely and efficiently travel to/from Cherry Crest on the bus.
