ISD 748 families:

Happy Summer! We are in the middle of updating our building lists, so if you have a senior who graduated, please disregard this message. Alternatively, if you know of a new family to our District, please be sure to share this with them!

We wanted to send a brief note about a few important items for Fall 2022:

  • New Hours for ORELC, PMPS, and RIS: Our early learning center and elementary school hours have been modified due to two main reasons connected to our tiered busing system this past school year: several buses consistently ran late to SMS and some of our youngest learners were regularly waiting several minutes on the bus at RIS for their homeward departure. Both of these issues presented challenges to students, families, and staff and it was understood that adjustments needed to be made.  Our Transportation Department created routes after reviewing our annual student system data update. These modified routes and bell times should alleviate the issues mentioned above:

    • ORELC: 

      • AM Preschool: 7:50a-10:20a (previously 8a-10:30a)

      • PM Preschool: 11:50a-2:20p (previously 12-2:30p)

      • Kindergarten: 7:45a-2:15p (previously 8a-2:30p)

    • PMPS: 7:45a-2:15p (previously 7:50a-2:20p)

    • RIS: 7:45p-2:25p (previously 8a-2:40p) 

    • SMS: 8:40a-3:25p (no change)

    • SHS: 8:40a-3:25p (no change)

  • Back to School Webpage: be sure to visit www.isd748.org/BackToSchool for updates including school supply lists, summer learning activities, and information regarding our unique first days of learning schedules for Sabre Launch (ORELC, PMPS, and RIS), Sabre Soar (SMS), and Sabre Splash (SHS).   

Principals will be contacting families later this summer with additional details about the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.

Thank you--
