Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year. We hope that you have enjoyed summer and are ready to begin.
Our staff has worked very hard to have our buildings and classrooms ready for our students and we are eagerly awaiting their arrival on Tuesday, September 2nd.
As September 2nd is the first day back for many school districts, traffic overcrowding frequently occurs. We ask for your patience and understanding in terms of our bus transportation during the first few days of school as potential delays may result due to this overcrowding. We have worked all summer refining runs for more efficiency and better service for our families and hopefully this will assist with traffic concerns.
Again, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our students on Tuesday, September 2nd.
On behalf of the Board of School Directors, administration, faculty and staff, I thank you for your ongoing support and wish you the very best in the coming school year.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
Judith M. Clark
Superintendent of Schools
