With all in-person students returning to school on Monday, some families may need to double check their stops and times. If you have not already registered for bus services, please contact the Transportation Department ASAP to ensure availability.
Currently, district leaders and administration, as well as members of the Return to Learn task force, with input from local health authorities, continue to meet to make the necessary adjustments to the original document from July, as well as provide a matrix to the community that clearly outlines the steps for the district to return to in-person learning based on local data around the COVID-19 virus.
9-R Families, we are looking forward to welcoming all students in all grades back to some form of in-person learning starting Monday, February 1. Your partnership has been appreciated as we worked to phase students back into in-person learning. While we have had a few interruptions thanks to snow and winter finally arriving, overall things are going great and we are all so grateful to have staff and students back in the buildings.
