3. Staff

4. Visitors

5. Student hardship

6. Established car pools

7. Seniors

8. Juniors

9. Sophomores

Principals shall determine if a student circumstance poses a hardship. Hardships may include, but are not limited to:

1. Residence in outlying areas with no available public transportation

2. Health issues
