We will be back in session shortly and want to take this time to welcome everyone to another school year. We continue to acknowledge the fact that we are an entire school community that needs to work together to do what is best for our young people. It is important to continue to do what is best for them by keeping the lines of communication open between us. Feel free to contact my office anytime with questions, concerns, etc.
With that being said, please review the enclosed material concerning our busing schedule. Routes are very similar to last year. We do not anticipate any major changes, however as with any school year, minor adjustments may have to be made during the first month of the school year as we welcome our new riders and establish the best possible routes for all involved. Once again, we will minimize our individual bus change requests throughout the school year. All requests MUST be for a legitimate reason. For liability purposes, students will not be permitted to ride another bus unless approved by the transportation office in ADVANCE.
Staff wise, we welcome to our Southington team, Mr. William Jackson, maintenance supervisor. We are also working on a few last minute teacher assignments that we hope to complete within the next week.
Lastly, the Board of Education approved an agreement with the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Department to provide a security officer for the 2018 – 2019 school year. They will be present in the school building daily. We want to provide a comfortable learning environment for our students and staff. We believe the addition of the resource officer, plus, the security enhancements made this summer will do just that.
Lastly, we hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming fall events.
As always, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND GO WILDCATS!
Superintendent of Schools
