In order to qualify for this low cost bus pass, the student must deliver to Kelly Vigil, the school Treasurer, this form (available in Spanish here) and $24.40 by the 10th of the month for a bus pass for the NEXT month. Kelly is required to pay for the bus passes in advance which is why she needs to collect the money in advance. If you have questions about this program, contact Kelly Vigil at email@example.com.
