Bus Delay, Substitutes, and COVID-19

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

We are experiencing a shortage of drivers again this week.  Please note that we anticipate that bus A will be about 20 minutes late for both JrSr high and VRES on Monday morning.  Thank you for your patience and understanding with our transportation challenges.  If you see a driver, please thank them.

We have gotten a positive response for our call for substitutes.  Thanks to everyone for helping to get the word out.  We still need more, so please continue sending people our way.

Since last week, we have been notified of 6 students and 3 staff members that have tested positive for COVID-19.  These cases happened over several days and are not connected to each other.  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.
