CALENDAR UPDATE:

ROAD CLOSURE - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM PENNDOT:
Route 412 will be CLOSED at Bucks County Nursery (near Church Hill Road) from Friday, February 8th at 6PM until Monday, February 11th at 6AM for repairs (weather and conditions permitting).

FROM OUR TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT:

On those days that school is in session and you are not comfortable with your student driver driving to school, please use the district-provided transportation services. We route for 100% of our students every day; however, if your child hasn’t used school district transportation in more than ten days, please call Krapf Bus Company at 484-812-0150 the night before to arrange a pick-up on the morning in question.  If you need an accurate and updated pick up time, it can be provided by Krapf. In the event your student driver will need to take the bus home, you can find your child’s bus number in PowerSchool by logging into the parent portal by visiting https://palisades.cliu.org/public/.  You can also load the safestop app on your phone via  www.safestopapp.com so you can track the bus location, and better predict arrival time during inclement weather.

They performed some very challenging pieces and did a phenomenal job!
