    HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – Turn it Off. . .And Turn On Your Child’s Imagination. Our children are spending too much time in front of the television. Too much television cuts into family time, may encourage violence, and promotes inactive lifestyles. Excessive TV watching has been linked to overweight in children. Tips to help you and your family turn it off are: 1) Designate certain days of the week as TV-free days; 2) Turn the TV off during mealtime; 3) Move the television to a less prominent location; 4) Listen to music instead of watching TV; 5) Read to your children; 6) Have your child draw a picture; 7) Suggest your child play a game with a sibling; 8) Put a puzzle together; 9) Limit channel surfing; 10) Have children choose one favorite program; or 11) limit the number of TV’s in your home to one or two.

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.
