School Year 2021-22

School Year 2021-22

We started strong this school year with 100% of our schools open consistently for in-person instruction. Adherence to our layered prevention strategies is keeping in-school transmission of COVID-19 extremely low. Children from age five and up are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination and vaccination rates among school-age children are strong. With these safety measures in place and continued monitoring of local health metrics, we are committed to finishing the school year as strong as we started.

Anticipated Bus Delays

Due to the bus driver shortage, we will be increasing “double back” bus runs, meaning a bus is required to run two scheduled routes back to back that would normally have been covered by two separate buses. These “double backs” may impact delivery time to schools or bus stops and may have a domino effect, affecting after-school drop-off times.
