It's School Board Recognition Month. Join us in thanking our school board for their hard work and leadership!



We are making a mid-year adjustment in transportation to increase consistency and efficiency for bus riders, beginning January 4. It's a change that needs to be made with the current driver shortage.

We have come up with a plan that will condense routes. We know a change like this can be difficult, but we ask for your patience as we implement this new plan.

We are asking that ALL families to visit our district website,, to view the parent portal to see if you were impacted by this change. A pop up will appear on the screen when you visit the website. You will then be directed to the transportation page where you will receive additional information. It is imperative that you check the parent portal.

If you have any questions, you may contact the transportation office at 330-797-3901, December 26th through the 29th from 7:00am to 2:00pm.
