The buses will follow elementary bus routes beginning at 10 a.m.

Secondary routs begin at 2 p.m.

Students must be present to receive a meal.

The bus routes will be for Burke, Compass, Dobbs Elementary, Ervin (pre-K) , Ervin (K-5th), Freda Markley Early Childhood Center, Ingles Elementary, Millenium at Santa Fe Elementary, Missouri Options, Ruskin High School, Smith-Hale Middle School, Truman Elementary and Warford Elementary.
