The start of another school year is just around the corner! The first day of school for all South Park students is Monday, August 28.

For the first time, homeroom and transportation letters will be emailed to all families with students in first through twelfth grades. Letters will be emailed on Monday, August 14. It is imperative that the district have your correct email address. If your email address has recently changed, please contact your child’s school office as soon as possible. Families requesting a change in transportation must do so by noon on Monday, August 21 for the change to be effective on the first day of school. After this date, changes will not be in effect on the first day of school.

Kindergarten families will receive their homeroom and transportation letters at the Kindergarten Bus Orientation on Wednesday, August 16. Families who do not attend the Kindergarten Bus Orientation will receive their transportation and homeroom letter by mail.

Please be aware that many bus routes have changed for the 2017-2018 school year. Please pay close attention to your child’s bus number and stop time. Stop times are just estimates. The South Park School District requires students to be at the stop at least 5-10 minutes before the listed stop time. Dismissals may be slightly delayed during the first few weeks of school. This may cause buses to be 5-10 minutes behind schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

There are a number of scheduled events over the next month to help prepare you and your child for a successful year.
