The Herscher School District will have unified schedules despite the warning of possible staggered schedules in June.
Superintendent Rich Decman shared the following letter with the school community on August 1.
On June 21, 2022, a letter was mailed/posted that notified the school community about the likelihood of our School District being forced to implement “Staggered Start/Dismissal” times for all of our buildings to start this school year. Fortunately, I am happy to report the District has been able to employ enough drivers to cover all of our routes to start the school year.
I want to personally thank our community for getting the word out of our desperate need for drivers. I firmly believe by working together we have avoided the inconveniences/hassles of a “staggered start/dismissal” day for our students (and families).
Barring any unforeseen issues, we will start the school year with the regularly scheduled start/dismissal times at all district buildings – after the first day which will be a 2:05 p.m. dismissal.
All schools will start at 8:00 a.m. and dismiss at 3:05 p.m. after the 1st day of school.
Bus pick-up/drop-off information for those students using our transportation services will be communicated via email no later than Wednesday, August 3rd.
Thank you all again for your help and please continue to encourage folks to drive busses as we can always use high quality substitutes and drivers for extra-curricular trips.
Have a great rest of the summer. Go TIGERS!!
Dr. Richard S. Decman
