The procedures for dropping students off in the morning at LRHS to ride a shuttle bus to Windom School will be as follows:

1. Students should not arrive before 7:30 a.m. to the north entrance of the new addition of the high school (NE corner of the block). 

 2. Busses will leave promptly at 7:40 a.m. 

 3. Busses will line up in the drive that passes in front of the new north entry.

4. Vehicles heading East on Prairie Street should turn South on Waverly St. and students will exit to the school side near the curb for safety. Students should utilize the sidewalk to where the supervisor will be or immediately load their bus. 

 5. Students should never pass between busses and should always cross at least 10 ft. in front of a bus within the driver’s sight.
