The school follows Montgomery County Public Schools. In the event of an early dismissal or closure the service will be cancelled for that day.
The primary aim of the bus is to assist families who do not wish to make the two-way trip over the American Legion Bridge at the height of the rush hour. In addition, the bus originates at the school and adding stops deeper into Virginia would pose an unacceptable burden on the driver.
