RSU #34 is always looking for "guest educators" to join our team! We have a number of fantastic educators on our staff who began with us as substitutes, got hooked on kids, realized they could make a difference, and built their careers with us! We're offering two trainings next week, and you can apply on-site at each. Please see the dates, times, and locations in the image! view image

The VRS staff is excited to welcome them to the school this year!

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
