Due to concerns for student safety, the district has changed the traffic patterns for the bus loops at Baker High School and Durgee Junior High School, as well as the schedule of classes for both schools. These changes will begin with the first day of school, September 8.

Over the last few years, the high volume of traffic at dismissal times on the district campus has raised many safety concerns. During the time of day when traffic is busiest on the district campus, large groups of students were walking from Durgee over to Baker to board the buses there instead of boarding at Durgee. There are also many students who walk home along the district's main road.

To address these safety concerns, beginning on September 8, the drop off times in the morning and the dismissal times in the afternoon will switch at Baker and Durgee. The buses will drop off Baker students at their building first in the morning

At Baker, the bus loop entrance and exit will be opposite of what currently exists. Buses will enter the loop from the south end, instead of the north end. New stop signs will be installed at the north end of the loop as well as at the corners where the bus loop intersects with the district's main road.
