    Transportation

    If your student will be taking the bus, please arrive at the bus stop five minutes before the bus is scheduled to pick up your student.  If you believe your student is taking the bus but did not receive any information, please call the school office at 293-8970 as soon as possible.  Please do not wait until the first day of school!

    Walking to School

    If you live less than one-half mile (Grades K-5) and one mile (Grades 6-8), your child should walk from home to school.  School patrols will be at the following corners: Case/White Bear, Ames/White Bear, and Maryland/White Bear, from 8:55 am to 9:10 am, and at dismissal.  (Important:  There will be NO patrols before or after that time).   School patrols work under the supervision of the Saint Paul Police Department, assisted by School Patrol Supervisor, Nancy Spack.  Questions or concerns, call Nancy at 293-8970.

    LUNCH APPLICATIONS

    It is IMPORTANT that you fill out a free/reduced lunch application every school year.  Lunch applications have been mailed to every family. If you did not receive an application in the mail, please call 651-603-4950 to have one mailed to you.  You can also pick one up at school or apply online at https://mealapp.spps.org.  If an application is not received by the first day of school or your child does not qualify for free/reduced lunches, your child will be charged the cost of a lunch which is $1.95 for students in grades Pre-k-5 and $2.10 for grades 6-8. Forty cents for reduced.   (Until your lunch application is processed, parents will need to provide a lunch for their child or give them money to purchase a school lunch).
