Bus Transportation:

Many of you are asking when we will have information on school buses. Specific bus information does not come out until late July. What we can tell you for sure is that if you are within a 2 mile radius of the school your child will either be a car rider, bike rider or walker. Everyone further than two miles will receive bus services. We will let you know when the link is current to check your addresses for bus service.

Water Concerns:

Many of you have expressed concerns over the water system in the Wedgefield area. The district has taken the safety and welfare of your students seriously. They have water filters on the pipes prior to the water fountains or bathroom fixtures already installed. They invested in designing an extensive water filtration system for each building to ensure the water is safe for drinking while at our new school. They are reviewing the reports taken by Orange County to help determine the correct design. As we continue to get updated information we will share it with you.

Reduced Rate Internet Services:

If you are in need of internet then this may be for you! They are offering families that qualify a super reduced rate of $5-10 a month for internet services. Here is a link for an application.
