We were thrilled to welcome students back for in-person learning following Winter Break. We have experienced a great start to the second semester. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to experience challenges with our bus transportation. First Student - our student transportation provider - has experienced delays in picking up and dropping off students due to a shortage of drivers. The driver shortage means that at times, buses may have to make multiple trips to transport all students home. Buses serving our elementary, middle and high schools have been affected by these delays.
