HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – Active after School – The amount of time a child is outside is directly related to how active they are. Encourage your child to stay outside for an hour before dinner and play. If they have no playmates in the area, encourage them to be creative on their own or take the time to play with them. Here are some ideas for activities they can do in that hour: *Bake *Skate *Jump Rope *Run *Swim *Fly a Kite *Play Hopscotch *Dance *Toss a Frisbee *Play Kickball *Play Tag *Play Catch *Play Soccer *Play Hide-N-Go-Seek
LATE STUDENT PICK-UP – As a friendly reminder, Welch Elementary does not have after school care. It is IMPORTANT when you are going to be late to pick your child up that you make arrangements with your emergency contact(s) to pick them up. Your continued understanding is appreciated.

2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
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.
