2019-2020 School Year Update

Specific information for the 2019-2020 school year as it impacts the class of 2026: 

The construction taking place at the elementary school creates a need for flexibility as improvements are made. The administrative team has collaborated with teachers, families, and students to try to make the transition as seamless as possible.


The class of 2026 will remain on an elementary school schedule and will continue to ride elementary transportation runs. Students will still have the option for early transportation to participate in intramurals, band and chorus.

The following will be the daily schedule for students:

  • 8:30 AM - Buses arrive in the Elementary School loop.  Students will be dismissed for breakfast.

  • 8:45 AM - Students will load shuttle buses at the elementary school.  There will be adult supervision to ensure that students who attend intramurals, chorus, band, or breakfast have boarded the bus.

  • 8:50 AM - Students will be transported to the Jr./Sr. High School to begin their day.

  • 11:36 AM - Students will eat lunch with 7th and 8th grade students.

  • 2:25 PM - Students will load shuttle buses back to the elementary school.

  • 2:30 PM - Students will participate in specials at the elementary school.

  • 3:20 PM - Students will dismiss from the elementary school as usual.

Parents or guardians dropping students off in the morning, rather than using district transportation, need to be at the Jr/Sr. High School by 9am. End of the day pick-ups will take place at the elementary school. Arrangements will be made to transport students for assemblies and other building wide activities during the school day at the elementary school.

For more information, the District is holding an orientation night for parents and students on Thursday, June 20 at 6pm in the Jr./Sr. High School auditorium.
