Important back-to-school information
Posted on 08/04/2023
This is the image for the news article titled Important back-to-school informationThe daily student and transportation schedules for all four C-R schools have been updated for the 2023-2024 school year to maximize instructional time at each building, while also managing the total length of day for students, inclusive of bus time. The updated start and end times have been coordinated to support efficient and predictable arrival and departure times for buses. 

In the coming weeks, building principals will communicate more detailed information regarding parent drop-off and pick-up times and locations. Specific transportation schedules and information will be sent to families by mid-August. 

Keep in mind, it takes time to establish new routines at the beginning of the school year. Therefore, we ask for your patience as buses are likely to run late for the first seven to 10 school days. 

Please note, the afternoon order of bus pick-up will be different this school year. Buses will pick-up at Radez first, then the High School, then the Golding/Ryder campus.
