Almost Ready!

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

We are ALMOST ready!  Today we hosted Pre-K orientation, VRES supply drop off, and 6th grade orientation.  The building is brightening up with the smiles of children.  This is a great time of the year.

We have had several questions about transportation.  With some staffing changes, we are catching up with some last minute route updates.  Please make sure to look in SchoolTool for individual bus information and keep an eye out for another message from me on Monday for the most updated bus routes.

Most other questions can be answered on our “Welcome Back” page.  You will find messages from the principals, pick up and drop off instructions, how to sign up for notifications and access SchoolTool, and bussing information.  

We still have quite a few students that have not registered for Chromebooks.  They will not have the devices for the first day.  If you have not done so already, ALL students in grades 5-12 NEED TO sign up to receive your Chromebooks for the year.  Please do so this weekend.  If you have trouble following the instructions on the page, we will hold an in-person help session on Tuesday, 9/6 from 6-7:30pm outside the Auditorium.  

If your VRES student needs a change to listed transportation, please email  or drop off a note in the VRES office with the following information:

  1. Student Name
  2. Requested Transportation Address
  3. Contact for New Address

Any requests received at this point may not be processed for transportation until the second week of school (Monday, 9/12)

We will see you soon!
