School Start Date Changed
Dear West Geauga Parent/Guardian:

I want to be sure that all of you know the first day of school for students this coming school year will be Monday, August 22, 2016. This is a change from the original date of August 17, 2016. The reason for the change is the desire to provide more professional development time for staff prior to the start of the new school year. Teachers and support staff will be back at school August 16 through August 19.

I hope that your summer vacation is going well. The administrators are working hard throughout the summer to prepare for the upcoming school year. We want the new school year to be a great one for our students and their teachers. Expect some exciting academic opportunities. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

West Geauga Transportation Survey 2016/2017
Dear West Geauga Parent/Guardian:  I hope that your summer is going well. I know that your lives are full of projects and activities that demand your attention. Completing a school survey is generally not on the list of requests.   However, I am asking that you complete the very short attached school transportation survey. My reason for doing so is a desire to increase the efficiency of our bus routes.  When we checked ridership this spring, we discovered that, while it was acceptable on our elementary bus routes, combined ridership on our middle school/high school routes was very low. In fact, of the twenty-two buses that transport middle school and high school students, seventeen had less than twenty actual students on board. Five had less than ten.

We hope you are having a great summer and look forward to seeing you in August for the start of the brand new school year. Updated Calendar
