The first day of school for students is Tuesday, August 26th.
We have had a busy summer with the hiring of new staff and some existing teachers who will be in new assignments.
The school buildings are clean and ready to go thanks to the efforts of our custodial and maintenance staff. We have worked this summer to address some grounds projects at all schools but especially at Halliwell.
My wish is for all of us to have a safe and successful school year. Get involved at your schools, volunteer to be on the school’s “School Improvement Team”, help in classrooms, become knowledgeable about what your child is learning and how you can help. Enjoy those special moments in the classroom, school, and/or extracurricular events where you get to see your child in action while showcasing their growth, learning, and success.
School times are:

Expect the buses to run late on both the morning and afternoon runs as drivers, parents, and students get acclimated to routes, stops, etc.
School Breakfast and Lunch Costs
For the first time in over four years, we have had to increase our breakfast and lunch prices. This was necessary due to the increased cost of food.
Our new prices are as follows:
Supplemental Student Accident Insurance
The school district offers additional student accident insurance through Lefebvre Insurance. This is not mandatory.
