In an effort to improve services to students and parents, Cassopolis Public Schools will be changing the start and end times of the school day, effective Monday, Nov. 17.
The decision was based on the results from a recent study on transportation, which revealed several issues that the district could resolve by rescheduling bus routes.
Benefits of rescheduling the bus routes for the school community are:
Therefore, as of Nov. 17, the start and end times for each building will be:
Squire's morning kindergarten and 4-Ranger dismissal time will be 11:25 a.m. and the afternoon kindergarten and 4-Ranger sessions will start at 12:05 p.m.
Your child's bus route will be adjusted to meet the timelines outlined above. Your child's morning pickup will be 15 minutes earlier and their afternoon drop off will be 10 minutes earlier. The morning kindergarten drop off time will be 5 to 7 minutes later.
The afternoon kindergarten pickup time will remain approximately the same at the present. If your child has a babysitter or a day care provider, please make sure that all of those involved are aware of the changes.
