The adjustments to the starting and ending times will give school bus drivers time to pick up and drop off students at each school on a daily basis.

The first day of school for students in Kindergarten, Grade 6, Grade 9 and the Howard T. Ennis School (excluding preschool) will be Tuesday, September 7. Students in Grades 1-5, 7-8 and 10-12 will return to school on Wednesday, September 8. Preschool programs, including Project VILLAGE, TOTS and Howard T. Ennis will begin on Monday, September 13.  

Parents will be contacted by the district in August regarding their children’s school bus transportation for 2021-2022. Transportation times may vary based on routing and bus schedules.
