Family Newsletter 6.11.21
Harwood Families -
Thank you for your patience, kindness, partnership and understanding during this school year. Throughout the year we have been humbled by your children’s resilience and incredible ability to pivot with grace.
This week - the joy of Spirit week, Transition day, Senior Awards night, Mt. Day, tonight’s Boy’s lacrosse Championship and tomorrow’s graduation were, are and will be beautiful. While we have learned much this year we are excited to return next Fall to 5 days of in person learning without masks and the ability to come together again as a full community.
With deep gratitude and in continued partnership,
Laurie, Duane and Meg

2020-2021 NEW bus & SCHOOL day schedule
HUUSD is pleased to announce that beginning fall 2021, we will be running new, improved bus routes. Taking advantage of opportunities afforded by being one district, we are able to run consolidated routes that will shorten student time on buses, separate elementary school students from traveling with middle and high school students and reduce or eliminate the long wait times some of our students have at the beginning or end of the school day. We believe these new routes will ease congestion and support increased ridership.
Improvements achieved through the new routes:
Wait times at all schools are reduced to an anticipated maximum of 10 minutes for students arriving before school starts, or waiting to get on a bus after school is dismissed.
Separates middle and high school students from elementary students on buses.
Ensures all students arrive at school before school officially begins.
Allows for a slightly later start for our older students while maintaining the earlier arrival for younger students, supporting parents/guardians getting to work.
Keeps school day length relatively consistent across the HUUSD.
Adds intradistrict choice transportation to CBMS from the Valley.
Reduces time on buses for ALL students.
Continues transportation for students attending the technical center.
