  • Get moving this Summer

    Whether you are spending June in summer school or just exploring the East Bay, Ms. Casey and the Health Center are distruting bus passes to students who qualify through the upcoming school week. The best time to get connected is at lunch, and if you qualify, your summer travels can be made much easier and much more affordable with this pass. Sometimes students get no momthly pass, even though they qualify, because they did not take the last step to pick up their monthly pass. Make sure you don't sleep on this opportunity, otherwise you may find yourself more grounded than you choose
