Carson Valley Middle School

Skip to main content Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. David M. Burns  The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. Tom Bodett  If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done. Ludwig Wittgenstein


Bus Route Information:

Bus transportation is provided to students at any grade level who live more than one mile from their school of attendance. The shortest, safest, and most convenient walking path shall measure distance from school. Severely handicapped students and students assigned to special programs for the handicapped may be transported regardless of their distance from school. We have established residential stops within attendance areas. We also stop at day care centers within the attendance boundaries of the elementary schools. Day care centers are considered residential stops. We do not stop at business addresses, only residential.

Snow Day or Inclement Weather:

The Transportation Department always considers student safety ahead of time schedules, so please bear with us on snow days. When the highways require snow tires, our buses are required to chain-up and therefore move much slower (25mph maximum speed). The decision as to whether or not there will be school is made by 6:00AM The DCSD website's main page will display snow day decisions by 6:30AM.  Click the links below for a printable version of important snow day information:
