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
On Thursday we had overwhelming success delivering school packets to our students. Thank you so much for meeting the bus or picking materials up. It will take a team effort to get through this and we are off to a great start! Please call the school or email any of your contacts at Alton Elementary if you need anything. We will do our best to help! Thank you again for your help!
Tomorrow, when the buses make their rounds to deliver meals, there will be packets of new materials on board for students from their teachers. The buses are generally in Alton between 10:40 and 11:30. If you have not been able to connect with the bus, please call the school to help us work that out. If you are not able to meet the bus, we will be in touch to make a plan B. (Our Old Town pre-k students will have materials delivered as Ms Lee's has indicated.)
