In an effort to help parents, family members, and community members with a smoother arrival, and to provide additional parking space for graduates, the Moffat County School District, in cooperation with K-Mart, will be offering free shuttles from the K-Mart parking lot on graduation day, May 23.

Starting at 9 a.m., the School District transportation department will begin running shuttles between the high school’s front entrance and the K-Mart parking lot.

An area for parking will be designated at K-Mart for this event, and shuttles will run every few minutes until the designated parking area is full.

After commencement exercises, shuttles will run for 30 minutes to take patrons back to their cars.

For more information, call transportation director Jim Baptist at 824-5511, or maintenance director Mike Taylor at 824-5522.
