Daniel Wright Junior High School E-Notice - Aug 18, 2021

Back to School Reminders

On Thursday, Aug. 19, please send your child to school with extra child-sized masks and a filled water bottle. We encourage your child to take the school bus as traffic can be heavy during pick up and drop off times and can back up onto surrounding roads. If you drive your child to/from school, please observe the following procedures.


Riding the bus? Please re-check Unified Classroom for possible bus stop changes. Here are directions on how to find the UC information. Also, please familiarize yourself with busing procedures.
