    Students should indicate via a sign-up sheet in the front office of Pine-Richland High School a week prior to each of the above dates whether or not they will need transportation or by completing a quick questionnaire. This will allow for clear communication to the bus transportation company. The questionnaire link will remain the same throughout 2021-2022.

    PM Beattie Students
    PM students can wait in the library until the end of the PRHS school day or they can be picked up after their last high school class.*
    *If a student is not riding the bus and is being picked up or dropped off,  he or she should submit a note to the front office.
    earlyWhat happens when PRSD has an early dismissal?
    When PR has an early dismissal, and Beattie is following a regular schedule, PM Beattie students will be transported to Beattie and then home. AM Beattie students would ride the bus home as usual.
