Good Morning Imagine Lakewood Ranch Families,

IMPORTANT BUS UPDATES-BUS #400 WILL NOT RUN FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. Unfortunately Coach Zehr will not be with us this upcoming school year, as he is off to new adventures and we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavors.

Morning Care and After Care will be provided Free of Charge until further notice for these families. We understand the inconvenience that this will cause some families and please know that we are doing our best to get this position filled.

BUS ROUTES-Fill out this online form for bus registration.  Please remember that if your child rode the bus last year, they will roll over to the new school year but a registration is still required.  New bus riders, please make sure you fill out the form but know that spots on the bus are not guaranteed. We will do our best to accommodate everyone.  Bus routes are available here.
