Dear Richland Two Families,
Please read this entire message. Beginning, Monday, Oct. 12, school will start on a two-hour delay. This delay will last at least through the week. Three-year old half-day classes are canceled when we are on a two-hour delay. A two-hour delay means:
* If your school normally starts at 8, it will now start at 10 a.m. Dismissal times
remain the same.
*Bus Riders report to your bus stop two hours later than usual. If you normally get to
your bus stop at 6:30. You now report to your bus stop at 8:30.
*Due to the numerous road closures, multiple bus routes have been adjusted. If there are
changes to bus routes, that information is posted on the district’s website.
There will be bus delays.
*Please be patient and safe. There will be congestion on roads due
to multiple road closures.
*Remember, do not drive around or move any barricades. Families
of car riders and student drivers, make sure to check your route to school.
*Breakfast will be available and lunch will be served. For schools impacted by the boil-water advisory, bottled water will be provided.
*If the two-hour delay creates a hardship for families, limited staff will be available so that
schools can open their doors at the normal time.
*To assist the Richland Two community, we have set up an informational page about the
delay on our website.
*If you know of a family who does not have Internet access at home, please help us share this information with them. They can visit a Richland Library branch, where computers and Internet access are available.
Returning to a familiar routine after a natural disaster is important for our students. As
always safety is our number one priority. Thank you for working with us as we strive to get
our students back in school safely.
