As a result of the weather Sunday into Monday, our Transportation Depot for our school buses is without power and likely will be for a few days. Therefore, they be working out of Central Office. If you have a bus related issue, please call 203-794-8071 or203-794-8604. We will let you know when the power has been restored to the Depot and you can resume calling that number. In addition, if your road is closed please walk your child to the nearest safe intersection. Please note, that buses may have to reroute due to road closures causing delays.
If you drive your child, traffic lights are still out and you should drive with caution.
We thank you for your flexibility.
Christine Carver, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
