    HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – Allow your children to have some choice in what they eat. You can help guide them in the right direction but help them to make good choices on their own. Having a wide variety of healthy foods to choose from will make this task easier.


    FROM OUR COUNSELOR, MS. WULLER – If you or your spouse is deployed or will be going on a TDY, your child is eligible to be a part of Ms. Wuller’s TDY support small group. Children participate in fun activities to help them explore their feelings about their parent’s absence, set goals while their parent is away, and focus on achievement while at school. Groups meet 1 x per week for about 25 minutes, and groups run for about 7 weeks per block. If you are interested to find out more, please contact Ms. Wuller at 674-9080, ext. 202. Thank you!

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.
