Red Raider Preschool Families-
As you may be aware, there is a nationwide shortage of truck and bus drivers which has had a major impact on both the private and public sectors. Painesville City Schools, like other school districts across the region, state, and nation, has experienced significant challenges as a result of this lack of available drivers. While we have managed to maintain our student transportation services throughout the first half of this year without a great deal of disruption, we will need to make some changes in order to maintain these services through the second half of the year.
The changes will impact our preschool families. In order to be able to transport students throughout the district with our current bus fleet, we will need to begin and end both preschool sessions 45 minutes later. This means that effective January 4, 2022 (after winter break), preschool sessions will operate on the following schedule:
Morning session: begin at 9:15 AM and end at 11:45 AM.
Afternoon session: begin at 1:15 PM and end at 3:45 PM.
Again, schedules will not change until after winter break. We recognize that any changes to school schedules can be disruptive to family schedules, so we want to provide as much advance notice as possible. We certainly apologize for any inconvenience the change to the session schedules may cause, and we are very appreciative of your flexibility and cooperation.
