Bus Safety Brochure

Every day, 25 million American students ride a school bus to and from their school safely. In fact, children are nearly eight times safer riding on the school bus than with their own parents and guardians in cards. But even one accident is too much. So it's vitally important that you help us educate our students about the do's and don'ts of riding the bus.
Summer Reading Assignments: A grade by grade guide

Please be sure your child completes the assignment for the building/grade he or she will be entering in the Fall. District-wide reading assignments have been established for Grades 1-5. At the secondary level, the assignments vary by school. If you have any questions, please contact your student's school.
School Supply Lists for 2015-16

To help you prepare for the year ahead, we’ve identified the supplies students will need to start the school year off right. Because no two schools are the same, the list of supplies varies slightly by building. Be sure to print only those pages that pertain to your student’s school.
