Trailblazer Times 8/13/23
Happy Sunday, Trailblazers- we hope you all had a restful and relaxing weekend!
In order to welcome and dismiss our students in a safe and orderly manner- we need your help! We received several complaints last week about families not following the transportation guidelines, particularly in carpool. Please check out the BRES guidelines linked HERE (and sent via text on Friday afternoon) and pay special attention to the items that are in bold (and listed below)- as those are the infractions that were occurring most frequently last week-
- don't drop students off in front of the school (you must get in the line as this will block the buses)
- don't cut over into the line at the cone- if you need to park go to the cone and turn left t park in the bus loop parking lot
- pull all the way up to the car in front of you
- if turning left at the stop sign onto Chambers- merge immediately into the back of the line. If you are at the back, let them merge
We truly appreciate your patience and support in following these guidelines.
Curriculum Night is Thursday, August 17th
You should have received THIS FLYER last week to learn more about this important opportunity for us to connect and share all of the wonderful teaching and learning that will take place in your child's classroom this year! If you haven't already done so, please take this brief survey (sent via text on Thursday, 8/10) to help us plan and prepare. Hope to see you there!
Bus service (repeated information)
On Tuesday, 8/1, the WCPSS school board reviewed details related to the ongoing bus driver shortage. If your student is assigned to transportation and is not a rider, please go to this LINK to indicate that you will not be accessing bus service. This will provide us with the most up-to-date information for transportation planning. Note: Submitting this form will remove your student from both yellow bus and vendor (cab) transportation service. There is the potential for significant delays in the AM/PM if the board implements A/B double-back routes when traditional schools start. We will keep you informed with any changes as we receive notification.
Volunteer application can now be accessed from home
