  • Good morning. I had a question concerning student riding permits and I was wondering if your school offers that program. I tried calling the attendance office, but I kept getting the automated message center. I tried at least four times\, and the message said to push 0 to get to the attendant. After four tries I thought I'd give up. Now I've asked my question what about a student or another person who needs help. Now this is something you should correct. Thank you for your time...
