Early Dismissal from GHS 8/4, 8/6, 8/7

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
It’s come to our attention two major traffic headaches in Greenwood may reopen this weekend. If so, this should alleviate our problem of late busses as we’ve experienced the last three school days. However, until then we need to make some adjustments to allow middle and elementary routes to be on schedule. Apparently middle school and especially elementary routes are running late due to heavy traffic.

So, the high school will dismiss this Tuesday (tomorrow), Thursday, and Friday at 2:20pm. This is only for this week. We will not dismiss earlier than our normal 2pm time on Wednesday due to the 6-hour seat requirement by the IDOE.

Hopefully the extra 10 minutes will allow busses to get to MS and elementary routes in sufficient time. Again, we will dismiss early this Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 2:20pm. Thanks for your understanding.
