In the event that your home school is closed and PLCC is still in session, the buses will run from your home school to PLCC and from PLCC back to your home school. The buses will not be running in your neighborhood. You are required to attend classes at PLCC even if your home school is closed. If you do not attend PLCC for transportation issues, this is considered an unexcused absence.
