CUSD #20 Community,
As everyone knows school is about to begin for the students and staff of Unit #20. We are excited to have everyone back at school and look forward to an exciting year.
With students returning to school, the amount of individuals walking and biking around town is going to increase. Please slow down and pay extra attention to your surroundings. Also, remember that it is against the law to use a cell phone in a school zone and our police department does a great job in monitoring this throughout the year.
School buses will continue to run as normal as possible. Due to a shortage of drivers, there may be times that we have to adjust routes and run a second route to cover certain areas of the district. Students and parents will be notified of these changes as soon as possible and we ask for your patience and understanding in these situations.
I also want to remind everyone that students who live within 1.5 miles of school are not allowed to ride the bus, unless they reside in what the state has determined to be a safety hazard area. Students in PreK through 8th grade are allowed to ride the bus if they live east of Route 1 or north of Highway 250. However, LHS students are not allowed to ride the bus if they live within 1.5 miles. I understand this causes hardships for some families as younger students can ride the bus but older siblings can’t, but that is a state law, not a local regulation.
This year, the state will not be providing reimbursement for school lunches for students. Therefore, we will be charging for breakfast and lunch again this year. I strongly encourage everyone to complete the application for free and reduced lunches. Families who qualify will be notified and student’s free/reduced status will be kept confidential.
School safety will continue to be stressed this year within Unit #20. We have added additional safety measures at each school as well as additional training for our staff to enhance the safety of all students and staff.
Finally, I encourage everyone to be involved in our school community as much as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school for assistance.
Doug Daugherty, Superintendent
