    HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – Scheduling a family meal is not always easy. Family members have different schedules and are often running in different directions. Mealtime, however, is a great time to come together as a family to catch up on the day’s activities, as well as share nutritious foods. Try scheduling at least two or three family meals each week. Avoid distractions like the TV or reading at the table. Keep the mealtime as pleasant and as less stressful as possible. Mealtime is not the time to bring up problems or discipline issues.

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.
