School News

Sport Photos/ Picture Re-take Day

Lifetouch will be here on Thursday, October 30th  to take sports photos for the soccer and cross-country teams.  Order forms were sent with students, only players purchasing individual pictures will have an individual photo taken.  Lifetouch will also be taking re-takes for any students that need them.    Please return unwanted photos when getting retakes.

Change in Bus E.

    Beginning Monday, October 27th, we will be making some adjustments to the “E” bus run (Reach Road, Greenlaw District, and Sunshine). These adjustments will add  5 to 10 minutes to the run in the morning and the afternoon.  We will make sure that those students who eat breakfast will have the opportunity to do so when they arrive  at school.

In the morning, pick up times from the beginning of the run to Sunshine will not be affected.  Pick ups after Sunshine will be five to ten minutes later. In the afternoons, drop-off times before Sunshine will not be affected. Drop-off times after Sunshine will be five to ten minutes later.

We realize this is a long bus ride.  The district is actively searching for other alternatives and we do not intend for this to be a permanent solution. After the district decides on a more permanent solution, we will notify you. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.

  • Check this website or our Facebook page for the notice of school tomorrow. "It is very likely there will be no school on Tuesday due to the continued wide spread power outages and downed trees and lines.  However, that decision won't be finalized until early Tuesday morning.  If we have to cancel again, the first notices will be posted on school websites and facebook pages.Due to spotty internet availability and most news outlets requiring web based cancellation procedures, the only sure TV station to carry a cancellation notice will be Channel 2, WLBZ."
