New Opportunities for Students, New School Start and End Times, New Bus Routes! The back-to-school issue of Community Connections is off to the printers, and will arrive in mailboxes in about a week! Much thanks to staff and community members who contributed pictures and articles. As we shared in the May issue, this school year will see a big shift in schedule and bus routes to yield new opportunities for students at no extra cost to taxpayers. In total this will yield up to 1,700 extra hours of opportunity to each child over the course of their K-12 journey, and also brings school start/end times to the time recommended by expert groups such as the American Association of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association. The digital issue of Community Connections can be reached here: https://5il.co/9hnk School start and end times are on page 3, and September bus routes are on pages 20-23. Bus routes will be adjusted on October 1st as new enrollments are finalized and as Cyr Bus and RSU #34 identify any unanticipated changes in traffic patterns. Please carefully check your school start and end times, and September bus routes! Thank you in advance for your patience and support as many in the community adjust to the new times and routes. Please don’t hesitate to contact school and district staff with any questions as we roll out the changes and iron out the wrinkles. Contact info can be found at www.rsu34.org
The state has made money available to districts that qualify as having an economic disadvantaged status. In order to qualify, we have to verify this. A letter will be coming home with your child. We ask you to please sign this and return it to the school. If you qualify for one of the categories, please write your child's name and check the applicable column. This may result in significant funds for our schools and there will be a $100 donation to the school with the highest rate of return of these letters. We would be able to plan an extra fun trip or offering for our students! Please help us have 100% return of these letters! Thank you!
I have had technical difficulties posting this, so I apologize that it is a late reminder. The first parent meeting of the year will be at the school at 6:00 tonight! I hope to see then!
