JANUARY 10, 2022

District ½ p.m. Professional Day, January 12, 2022 AND Potential Busing Issues.

As a reminder, the district will be holding an afternoon professional day on Wednesday, Jan. 12, for which we have developed a customized early dismissal schedule. The adjusted schedule for that day is attached to this message and also posted to our website. We will be dismissing at 11:15am on Wednesday.

It is important to note that, due to the truncated elementary schedule on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for parent conferences, transportation delays could occur for our secondary schools on those days.

As the elementary schools will dismiss before us, we are anticipating delays in busing at our normal dismissal. Students may wait inside for any delayed buses but if they can not or do not want to wait, students should make other arrangements.
