  • field trip Jungle Jim's School Wide Field Trip

    Monday, June 4, 2018





    May 15, 2018

    Dear Students and Parents:

    We are looking forward to a fun day at Jungle Jim’s! Thanks to our wonderful PTO, who picked up the complete cost of the buses, the cost for the trip is $23.00 and it will be Monday, June 4, 2018. As previously announced, all students who do not receive a disciplinary referral that result in an ISS or OSS from May 14th to June 4th are eligible to go.

    The park area is enclosed. Students will be made aware that at NO time may they go anywhere alone. If a student needs assistance, they should be able to get it quickly, as the park is not very large. All cell phones should be left at home or locked in a school locker for the day; students will not be permitted to take them to the water park.

    Jungle Jim’s will allow lunchboxes to be brought in and they have lockers available to students starting at $6.00. In addition, the snack bar will be open. Prices and other info can be found at

    Due to the dynamic nature of some of the water rides, all students need to wear swimsuits that fit appropriately and will stay in place. As with all areas of the park, if students are not acting appropriately, they may lose access to certain rides for the day, or even, depending upon the severity of the behavior, be prohibited from participating in other end-of-the-year events.

    There is no rain date set and the park only closes down if there is thunder and lightning. The bottom of this form should be attached to a check/cash and returned no later than May 30, 2018.

    Please fill out the form below and have your child return to their homeroom teacher. Hopefully your child can join us! Jims Permission Form 2018.docx

Bus Routes

Bell Schedule


    The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
    and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running. 

    With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
    we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.

    Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
    Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
    to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.

    The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
    or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.

    After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
    times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.

    Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
