Federal COVID-19 requirement for staff

In a message sent to staff earlier this week, the District laid out a preliminary timeline for fulfilling the federal regulation that all staff either be vaccinated or tested weekly. The District will work to meet this federal requirement in the coming months.

Potential bus route delays

So far this school year, we have been fortunate that we can provide consistent transportation services for our students. However, as the winter months approach and the spread of COVID continues to threaten staffing levels, this may not always be the case. If there are route delays due to these issues, families will receive prompt notifications about next steps. Any late arrival or absence due to transportation issues will be excused. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause your family.
