Transportation FYI


All  buses depart from Pinewood and drop off at Boys and Girls Club. 

If your student rides the bus from Pinewood to Boys and Girls Club, the bus color that they would ride would be the bus color that services their home location. 

If, at any time your student needed to ride the bus home in case of an emergency they would know their driver, and they would be on the correct bus not only to take them to Boys and Girls Club but also to take them home.
