The Laredo school district has purchased a 53 passenger bus for $3,000. The 1994 International, with 150,000 miles on the odometer, will be used as a backup. The bus was purchased from Randy Small Transportation.
The vehicle replaces a 1994 GMC Blue Bird bus that the Laredo district wants to sell. The asking price is $1300. Persons interested in purchasing the bus should contact Laredo School Administrator, Phil Fox.
The Laredo Board approved allowing 3rd and 4th grade boys to participate on the 5th and 6th grade boys basketball team. That's because of low numbers of 5th and 6th grade boys. There are enough girls in the 5th and 6th grades to have a team.
The Laredo school Christmas program is the night of December 17th at 7 o'clock.
Graduation is the night of May 9th at 7 o'clock. However, the date could change if there are makeup dates at the end of the school year.
