We had originally planned to begin signups for returning students and their siblings starting today (March 4th), however this is being delayed a few days as we are in the process of moving signups to a new platform.  We anticipate this will be complete within the next few days. We will email all current families with the signup link as soon as it's ready. This will still allow over 3 weeks for returning families to pre-register returning riders and siblings.
