WE'RE GETTING READY FOR YOUR ARRIVAL!
BUS REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 1, 2020
The deadline to register for Pay-N-Ride transportation is October 1, 2020. (You must register IF your student is grade K - 6 AND you live within 2 miles - OR - Your student is in grade 7 and above regardless of distance. You must register even if you are on a fee waiver.)
Per State regulations, all buses will be at reduced capacity and students will be assigned a seat for the school year to maximize social distancing and reduce the spread of COVID. Starting on October 2, 2020 no bus registrations will be accepted until we have finalized bus capacity and seating assignments. Once bus capacity is identified, the school will re-open the registration process. Please understand that this could take several weeks. If you do not register by October 1, please make alternate travel arrangements until the registration re-opens.
Bus routes will be posted on our website as soon as they become available. Click HERE for the registration link.

STUDENT LATE ARRIVALS AND EARLY DISMISSALS
An Excerpt from our Returning and Learning Handbook Addendum Regarding Attendance
Student attendance will be tracked each day. It is expected that students attend their remote learning and/or in-person classes as scheduled. Absenteeism will be addressed considering guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Students who are quarantined due to contact, but are not sick, would not be marked absent because they can attend remotely. Families should notify the child's teacher or the school office regarding individual circumstances that may arise which interfere with the student’s ability to attend (internet issues, connectivity problems, etc.) class remotely.
For the 2020-2021 school year, a parent/guardian email will be accepted to excuse illness where a doctor’s office visit is not required. The purpose of this procedure is to encourage families to keep their child home if they are exhibiting symptoms or are feeling unwell. When possible, it would be helpful to give your child's teacher advance notice that your child will be absent, late, or dismissed.
