Icy and snow-packed roads in some areas of the district require us to implement a 2-hour delay today (1/26/22) in order to safely transport students to all schools across the district. This means that buses will run 2 hours later than during normal times. If you drop your child off at school, please remember that staff will also be on a two-hour delay. Full day Pre-K programs are also on a two hour delay. Morning Pre-K programs have been canceled. Afternoon Pre-K programs will operate on a regular schedule.
