Welcome to Harding School

  •  Important EMTA bus rider information:

    Please be advised that effective Monday, October 2, no temporary bus pass letters will be issued.  If a parent fills out a bus pass application in the school office, it is the parent’s responsibility to transport the child until a bus pass is issued or the request is denied.  This usually takes about 3-4 days.  Any temporary bus pass letters currently issued cannot be used after the expiration date on the letter.

    Beginning this Monday, October 2, a student that does not have a bus pass or temporary bus pass letter may not ride the bus.  THEY MUST SHOW THE BUS PASS OR LETTER EVERY TIME IN ORDER TO BOARD THE BUS, BOTH IN THE MORNING AND AFTERNOON.  They will not be authorized to ride the bus without the bus pass or the temporary bus pass letter. 

    In addition, the school does not supervise students at the bus stop.  We recommend that parents remain at the bus stop to ensure the child’s safety at drop-off and pick-up times. Misbehavior will not be tolerated and will result in disciplinary measures, not limited to being suspended from riding the bus. 

    The safety of our children is of utmost importance to us.  Please help us by being at the bus stop in the morning and the afternoon to ensure that they are safe and know their stop.

    Please contact us with any concerns at 874-6550.

     

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Kathleen R. Farnham, Principal              

    Mr. Jeffrey Yonkers, Assistant Principal
