Bus Delays and COVID-19

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

In addition to the road construction affecting routes B, E, H, & I this week, bus D will be approximately 30 minutes late on Tuesday (and likely more days) for both elementary and JrSr high runs due to a lack of drivers.  We will continue to do everything that we can to minimize impact to students.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  If you know anyone that may be interested in driving a bus, please encourage them to start a conversation with our district.

The district has been notified of four students from various grades that tested positive.  We also have a staff member that has tested positive. All identified contacts have been called directly and notified of quarantine following the DOH contact tracing guidance.  

The district continues to implement layered prevention strategies in an effort to keep the entire #fRAMily safe and school open.  Everyone wants to keep kids in school safely.  We are all working together to make that happen and thank you for your partnership in that goal.  Please remember to send students to school with a mask and to keep the kids home if they have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. We will get through this together.
