Transportation – Requests for bus passes must be completed by parents on the MCSD website.  Click the “Bus Stops” link and enter your address to find your child’s bus information.  Write it down and give to your child so they will know their bus number, pick up times and location.  Expect delays the first day/week of school.  No child will be turned away from the bus stop because they do not have a bus pass.
