Bus Delay & Covid-19

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

Bus D (both JrSr & VRES) will be approximately 25 minutes late again on Friday morning due to lack of drivers.  Buses are currently scheduled to run on time in the afternoon.  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.  We are hiring!

The district has three more students from various grades that tested positive.  2 of these students have not been in the building.  All identified contacts have been called directly and notified of quarantine following the DOH contact tracing guidance.  

We have experienced far more COVID-19 cases in the past week than previously.  There has not been an outbreak at school, but we do seem to have many individual cases. 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.
