Dear Parents and Staff,

It has been exciting to welcome our students back to full-time, in-person learning. I wanted to write a short note to acknowledge the transportation issues some of our schools and families experienced this first week. 

Some of our drop-off times have been later than usual, and we appreciate your understanding as we fine-tune our schedules. Our principals and secretaries have been doing their best to inform families when certain buses would be late, along with an estimated drop-off time.  

I apologize for any inconvenience that late drop-offs caused for families and staff. We are working closely with First Student to solve some specific pick-up/drop-off issues. The timing of our buses is improving each day, and we will continue to work diligently to ensure students' safe and timely delivery to and from school.
