Merrillville Intermediate School(MIS) buses are labeled with a yellow "X" on the first passenger seat window of each side of the bus. This is done in order to distinguish the MIS buses from the Elementary School buses. These buses may arrive at the same location at nearly the same time, please be aware of this and make sure that you are looking at the correct bus numbers when it arrives at the stop.
