Dietrich Introduction

What does it look like at FLES?

This summer, the Kettle Moraine YMCA held summer camp at RMS every week, and summer school, which ran for six weeks, is finishing up tomorrow! That means our major construction projects occurred at FLES this summer. So what is different? Safety features and updates for our parking lot. Take a look at the progress! And, stay-tuned for updates from Mr. Laird regarding traffic flow as we near the start of school.

2019/20 Busing Survey

If you have already done so, thank you! If not, please complete this form (by clicking on the button above) for EACH child so that GO Riteway can begin planning routes for the 2019/20 school year.

Efficient Bus Routes...

... are optimized through your help. By completing this survey, you assist Riteway in creating the most efficient routes possible. No response is the same as indicating you need transportation every day. By notifying Riteway of your routines and preferences they can alter routes planned and pick-up/drop-off times. Bus schedules will be made available by Riteway as we near the start of the school year.
