The first day for students in grades 1–12 will be Monday, August 21st.
The first day for busing for kindergarten and pre-school students will be Thursday, August 24th.

Pre-school, Kindergarten, and Elementary Information / St. Mary’s Middle School:
All kindergarten through fourth grade students, as well as St. Mary’s 5th and 6th grade students, will be on the elementary route schedule. Pre-school students will receive their bus tags on either 8/22 or 8/23, at their open house. Kindergarten students will receive their school bus tags at the time of assessment from their teacher. 1st grade students will receive their tags at their respective elementary open house events on Thursday, August 17th starting at 5:30pm. All pre-school, kindergarten and 1st grade bus students are required to wear their tags for the first (2) weeks of school. 

All K-4 grade school students assigned as walkers to Central and Russell should arrive by 8:00 am to ensure transportation to school. Students living near Central will continue to be bused from Central to their respective elementary building. Students assigned to the Central stop will assemble at the West side behind Central School (playground area). Since students in the Central area attend both Auburn and Dowds, buses will be providing transportation to Dowds school from this stop and these children will “shuttle” to Auburn as directed.  Parents are encouraged to assist their children for the first couple weeks of school in boarding the appropriate bus.  

The elementary “shuttle exchanges” will again take place at Auburn and Dowds respectively.  St. Mary’s shuttles will continue to be assigned to/from Auburn and Dowds as well. Elementary schools are in session at 8:40 and bus riders dismiss at 3:15. After school “shuttle” students will be released and shuttled between Auburn and Dowds. “Late bus” students will wait at their buildings for buses to return for home transportation. Students should arrive at Central and Russell after school at approximately 3:50 pm.
