Latest News for Whipple Elementary

Important Bus Information

It is important at the end of the day that someone is at the bus stop to receive their student(s) as they get off the bus.  For safety reasons, our bus drivers will not release students from the bus without an adult (parent, grandparent, babysitter or older brother and sister) present. If no one is available to get your child, they will be returned to the school.  This could lead to your child losing bus priviledges for several days or the entire school year.   Thank you for your understanding as safety is our top priority in the district.
