A Message From Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch
We have been working with First Student to try to improve afternoon drop off times on the Orange and Lime routes. Effective Tuesday, December 1st, First Student has agreed to add a bus to each of these routes. This should improve drop off times considerably. Please see the attached document to determine which of the Orange and Lime buses your child should ride. See Orange and Lime bus maps.
Reed Union School DistrictConference Week Release Times
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Conference week is an exciting time to meet with your child's teacher to review achievements and areas of further progress needed by the end of year. In order to provide adequate time for teachers and parents to meet, students are released early during conference week.
Unfortunately, it was brought to our attention yesterday, that when the school start times were adjusted for the 2015-16 school year last spring, conference week release times were not adjusted accordingly. By not making the adjustment, it created a problem in maintaining our annual instructional minutes which are reported to the state. We are required to ensure all students receive a mandated number of minutes of instruction each academic year. The original release times also negatively impacted our home to school transportation service which many of our students utilize on a daily basis.
All families should have received a message from their child's school yesterday notifying them of the change in the Conference Week release times beginning Monday, November 16th. The following are the dismissal times which are in effect from November 16th - November 20th:
Reed Elementary 12:00 p.m.
Bel Aire 11:50 a.m.
Del Mar Middle 12:20 p.m.
Although students are released early on conference week, teachers continue to provide a rigorous program for students. It is important that students attend each day so they do not miss valuable learning experiences.
For your convenience, we are attaching the Conference Week bus schedule. We apologize for the late notice and thank you for your support and understanding.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving break from November 25-27.
Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
