Transportation Update from the Superintendent - September 28th

In October, we will return to our regular schedule with all students learning in person October 2-4, a scheduled remote learning day on October 5, and Fall Break on October 6 and October 9. For the next two weeks, our intention is to transport all students assigned a bus stop to and from school each day; however, adjustments to pick up and drop off times will continue to be necessary as our existing drivers cover multiple runs.

Student Accident Insurance for 2023-2024

The District does not carry medical insurance on students; however, it does provide parents with the opportunity to select a primary excess group insurance plan for their child. Since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and many require a deductible or co-insurance, student accident insurance can help eliminate the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses.  There are two plans available for your consideration. Please click here for more details and information on enrollment.
