September 17, 2013

This notice is for all parents of students travelling on Tim Mountain’s bus, Bunny Duffy’s bus and Rhonda Vickers’.  Bus schedules have changed from September 20 and extended to October 4. 

The contractor just resubmitted a revised work schedule for the main river bridge.  It will now be closed on Friday September 20 and is scheduled to reopen on September 30th at noon (weather permitting).  This lengthy closure is due to the contractor doing all closures at once instead of the original plan of three separate closures.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school


Our first cross country meet will be Monday, September 16 at North and South Esk Elementary.
