Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!
We are Returning Strong to five days a week of in-person instruction.
To ensure a safe start to the school year, layered prevention strategies are in place in all schools, including wearing a mask while indoors. The two most important things you can do to help us keep each other safe this year is to get vaccinated when you are eligible and wear a mask indoors. Read more about why these measures are important and how we’ll practice safety this fall.
Anticipated Bus DelaysDue 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.
