New Propane Fleet to Debut

The Waterbury Public School district joined other environmentally-conscious school districts from around the country by switching to propane-fueled school busses to transport most students this year. The 149 new yellow Durham Transportation busses are distinguishable by white roofs and extended engine compartments, as well as “propane” markers in several locations on the sides and back of the bus. They have already begun travelling around the city of Waterbury, as drivers familiarize themselves with the busses and their new school bus routes.


PD for Music Teachers

Re: music professional development scheduled for Friday. To clarify: secondary music teachers will conduct their PD on Thursday as scheduled (CHS – rooms will be clearly noted throughout the building). The Friday program will be provided – participation is voluntary. This should prove to be a worthwhile learning experience – i.e. time well-spent. Elementary music teachers will convene on Friday as scheduled (note correspondence to the dept. sent by Cathy Dwyer on Monday the 22nd).

ATTENTION PARENTS: Re Bussing

Alert:  If your child is going home on a different bus than they arrived on or if they will be picked-up, please send a note to the school so the staff can place your child on the correct bus or in the correct pick-up line.

Njoftim: Nëse fëmija juaj do të shkojë në shtëpi me autobus tjetër nga ai që ka mbërritur, ose në qoftë se do të merret nga ju, ju lutemi dërgoni një shënim në shkollë, në mënyrë që stafi t'a vendosë fëmijën në autobusin përkates, ose t'a vendosë atë në rrjeshtin e duhur të marrjes.

Alerta: Si sus hijos se van a casa en un autobús diferente al que llegaron o si van a ser recogidos, por favor envíe una nota a la escuela para que el personal pueda ubicar a su hijo en el autobús correcto o en la fila correcta de recogida.
