TRANSPORTATION:  One of the issues that became evident during this first week of school is that we have a high number of students being transported to school by car instead of on district provided transportation. Please continue to follow the directions being provided at the building level to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Your patience is very much appreciated.  We are being attentive to meeting the needs of our families while being cautious not to allow school traffic to back up onto state roads which is not permitted.  Your assistance in helping your child to be ready to exit the vehicle and keeping the flow moving is appreciated.
