Dr. Freeman Back to School Update 8-10-2021
Winter Weather is upon us. There will be early mornings when decisions must be made about whether or not to cancel or delay the start of school. It is rarely an easy decision and is one that is made with a great deal of thought. The Superintendent and the Board of Education hope that school can be open every day; however, to ensure student safety, school may need to be delayed or closed some days, during the school year, due to dangerous weather and road conditions. The safety of our students is always a top priority.
School closings or delays will be announced to parents through our Parent Square notification system. The automated message system will send out voice messages to the numbers that are listed in our Skyward Student Data Management System. Please keep us informed of any changes to your contact information. This can be done by contacting the school that your child attends.
Information on school closings and delays, due to inclement weather, will be announced on the following media outlets:
WCBK 102.3 WISH (CW) Channel 8 WTTV (CBS) Channel 4 WXIN (FOX) Channel 59 WRTV (ABC) Channel 6 WTHR (NBC) Channel 13

School Bus Safety for Kids- The Danger Zone
What is the "danger zone"? It is the area surrounding the bus where children are hard to see. We want your children to be safe when they travel to and from school. As the new school year begins, there are some key lessons that children should learn before even beginning their first class. Parents are an integral part of a total safety program for children who travel by school bus. If your children ride the bus, here are some things you can do to help keep them safe.
- Have your children put everything they carry into a backpack or school bag so that they won’t drop things along the way.
- Attach a piece of high visibility fluorescent or reflective material to their clothing or backpack.
- Make sure they leave home on time so that they can walk to the bus stop and arrive before the bus is due. Running can be dangerous.
- Go to the bus stop with a young child and have older children walk in groups. There’s safety in numbers because groups are easier for drivers to see.
- If your child must walk in the street, walk single file, face traffic and stay as close to the edge of the road as possible.
- Don’t let your child play running games or push or shove at the bus stop.
- Make sure your child stands at least 6 feet (3 giant steps) from the road while waiting for the bus.
- If children must cross the street to the bus, remind them to wait for the driver to signal that it’s safe to cross.
- Tell your child if they drop something near the bus they should never pick it up, instead, they should tell the bus driver and follow the driver’s directions. Remind children to look to the right before they step off the bus, other drivers in a hurry sometimes try to sneak by buses on the right.
- Teach your children to secure loose drawstrings and other objects that may get caught in the handrail or door of the bus as they are exiting.
- Talk quietly.
- Be courteous to the bus driver and follow the driver’s directions.
- Keep the aisles clear.
- Stay seated for the entire bus ride.
