Great news! The Bookmobile and Mathmobile will be running again this summer with a few modifications based on the state requirements for COVID-19. Please read through our new processes prior to visiting so that you are able to help our teams keep everyone safe and healthy!

Bookmobile, Wednesdays, June 24 – August 19
Books will be prepackaged in sets of 3 by level. When families arrive at the Bookmobile location, you will need to line up by a cone to ensure social distancing. When you reach the front of the line, you will let the staff know what book level(s) you would like (1 book package per child). The staff member will place your book package(s) on a table so that you can step forward and take it. As soon as you have picked up your books, please return to your car and depart.

To return books, please keep them together as a set in the same plastic bag. When you arrive at the Bookmobile location, please make sure the bag is sealed and then place it in the bin marked for returns. Books will be stored in the original plastic bag in the sealed bin until the following week. Families may then join the line to request a new set of books.

A message from Superintendent Sweeting
Following the sad events the past several days, I wanted to reach out to you.

The value of equity and safety is anchored in every aspect of our Strategic Plan.

Each of us has a responsibility to foster equity and safety for every person in our community. We are committed to continuing our efforts to increase culturally responsive practices and promote anti-racism and social justice in our schools.

We want to ensure everyone is safe and healthy especially during these uncertain times.

We live, learn and work in an AMAZING community. Let’s continue to move forward with compassion and kindness.

Take care and stay well.
