Important Information on Changes to School Start/End Times and Bus Routes for 2017 - 2018

  bus ***New  2017/2018 K - 12 Bus Routes

 At their June 13th meeting the School Board approved changes to our start/end times and a single tier bus system with K – 12 bus routes for the 2017 – 2018 school year.  This will help us to have a school schedule which better meets the developmental needs of our high school students; one that supports their growth and learning.  Research on the benefits of a later school start time for adolescents can be found below under Later Start Time Resources.  Additionally, it will provide us greater flexibility with our resources and allow us to more effectively provide for students’ instructional needs.  As we continue to implement competency-based learning PK - 12, having more options for learning is essential.  Furthermore, as a School District we value collaboration amongst our team of educators.  The changes to our start and end times, will allow provide more opportunities for professional dialogue and learning across grade-levels.

K – 12 Bus Routes
We are continuing to refine bus routes and will plan to have them posted on our website on August 15th. However, we recognize that some families may need estimated bus arrival times to plan childcare. Therefore, if you contact our office at 279 – 7947, we can provide an approximate time at this stage. Please note: adjustments will still be made until the beginning of August and that the information shared will be subject to change. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to make changes to improve the bus experience for our students.

New Inter-Lakes Campus Traffic Pattern
Additionally, we will be implementing a new traffic pattern for the Inter-Lakes campus at the start of the 2017 – 2018 school year. A diagram outlining this new pattern can be found HERE.  We will be sure to have a number of helping hands available at the start of the school year as our community adapts to this new flow of traffic.
