RaiderQuest will also be where incoming freshmen will complete a portion of their summer reading assignment. All assignments in the course are due by August 11. If you missed the April 20 Course Verification & Technology Night, and did not attend the makeup dates on April 25 and 27, you will not have access to this course.

2017-18 BUS TRANSPORTATION
We are excited to announce that the four bus lines we currently manage will continue for 2017-18 with no changes in the routes or stop locations. To reserve your spot on one of the bus lines, you will need to register online and complete the 2017-18 Bus Reservation form. Open enrollment for bus passes will begin July 3, 2017 and will end August 3, 2017.  Everyone is encouraged to sign up early to ensure a spot on the desired bus line. An initial payment of $75 will be required when reserving a spot on the bus. That payment will be applied toward the purchase of the bus pass. All annual or seasonal pass purchases will have the remaining balances added to their FACTS tuition payments and continue throughout the duration of the plan. Families on one- or two-pay plans will have their payments collected in full on September 20, 2017.
The sign up process remains the same and can be found at www.regisjesuit.com/busreservations.
Bus pass purchases may be made any time during the school year through the Facilities Coordinator, Mark Sarna, in his office located on the lower level of the Steele Center, or in the Boys Division Main Office or the Girls Division Attendance Desk. 

CLASS OF 2018: START THINKING ABOUT SENIOR PHOTOS
All seniors must have their portrait done by a Bettinger photographer (www.bettingerphoto.com) so that the backgrounds are all the same, and everyone will be included in the class composite photo. That composite is put together by Bettinger and thus you must use them for a basic senior portrait. Bettinger has put together three senior photo options; find all details here. Seniors also must take the Lifetouch photo on Registration Day which is used for their school ID.
