Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year. We have had plenty of staff changes occur during this past summer in preparation for the school year and are still in the process of filling positions available. We have lost some quality people but are excited about our incoming new staff members as well.
Due to the fact that a few of the positions are still up in the air we will not mention all of our changes at this point. One major change however that we must mention, is that of the position of principal. Mrs. Amy Burzanko secured a position in the Geneva City Schools. We are fortunate to announce that Southington Local Schools has hired Mr. Robert Kujala. Robert is a Braceville native and a LaBrae Local and Hiram College graduate. We are excited to have Robert join our family here at Southington Schools.
When talking about the beginning of the school year and all of the changes I must mention to all of you the ever present issue of a lack of bus drivers. This issue is a state and county wide issue. It is not unique to Southington. As a result, many districts are doubling up routes or reducing routes.
We have four bus routes this year. The bus numbers and roads they travel are in this document. All of our buses will leave the bus garage at 6:30 a.m. to begin their high school run. The elementary runs will begin around 7:35 a.m. The order the roads are listed is not necessarily the route that bus will travel. It will take us at least a week to establish a schedule. It is highly suggested to be on the lookout the first few weeks for the bus number listed for your road. We THANK YOU for your cooperation in this matter. Any questions feel free to call me at the number listed below.
Finally, Southington Schools will not have full days for professional development this year. In place of the two waiver days, we will have six early release days. All students will be released two hours earlier than normal. Our first early release day for professional development is Friday, September 25, 2015.
Once again, we are looking forward to an outstanding school year. See you soon.
