Transportation News

Transportation for the 2021/2022 school year

There are times when we are asked if a new stop can be made. This type of request may take a minimum of two weeks to coordinate and process the information (weather permitting). Such requests would require us to go out and look at a house location to make a better determination if the request can or cannot be done. We ask if you would help us locate you easier, by ensuring your address is clearly posted, and no less than 3 inches tall and visible from both directions and not obstructed from trees, shrubs etc.

Please remind your student(s) of proper bus stop behavior by standing at the stop, and not playing games or horsing around and not going onto or disturbing someone else’s property Also, please remind your student(s) there are several bus rules and one of them are that there is NO food nor drink permitted on the school bus. There is the potential for another student to have an allergic reaction to that item. The newest rule that MUST be followed is to wear your face covering at all times while on the bus and to stay in the seat that has been assigned to you.

Inclement Weather: The new notifications system will follow the districts guidelines that are sent out via Skyward and will also be updated via the districts web page at www.rlasd.net; Twitter: @rlschools and Facebook: Red Lion Area School District. Please ensure your contact information is updated in Skyward.

Red Lion Area School District Title 1

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. Schools are identified as Title I based upon their school's percentage of students who are eligible for free and reduced lunches. Once a school is identified as Title I by proving economic need (a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunches), the educational needs of each child in the school building are then examined, regardless of the child's free/reduced lunch status.

The Red Lion Area School District Title I Program is a school-wide assistance program in which all students in grades K through 6 who are enrolled in a Title I building may receive Title I services. These services are provided to address students' needs in the area of English Language Arts. Students are eligible to receive supplemental instructional services and activities which support these students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in the areas of reading and writing.

All of our elementary schools are approved as Title I schools for the 2021-22 school year, except for Locust Grove Elementary. If you have a specific question regarding a school's Title I program, please contact the building principal or reading specialist at any of our schools.

The Red Lion Area School District Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy & School-Home Compacts for 2021-22 will be posted in September on the home webpage of our Title I buildings. These documents encourage parents to be actively involved in their child's education.
