Stillwater Avenue: Stillwater Avenue from Bennoch Road to McDonald's will be closed for road work. This will impact the bus schedule and arrival/ending of the school day. Please be patient with the bus schedule delays.

Emailing the Teacher about an absence or appointments: We appreciate parents emailing the teacher about an upcoming absence or notifying about an illness. Please include Deb Letourneau in the email loop to note that absence or change in the office. This will avoid an unnecessary call home. Deb.Letourneau@rsu34.org
