2022-2023 Welcome Back Plans
2023-2024 Welcome Back Training Schedule
August 1, 2023
To all of our transportation team members,
Time is passing quickly and we are at the point where we must think about the end of this school year, summer driving opportunities and most importantly, the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. As some of you may already know, we have made some slight changes to the back-to-school meeting process. For the 2023-24 school year, we will go back to the past tradition of having one large single "in-service" day meeting instead of the individual area break out meetings over several days that we have practiced for the past several years.
The 2023-24 routes will be posted on our section of the district website from July 24, 2023 until July 28, 2023. The "all bid" and routes will be awarded in person at the Simpson Road facility on July 31, 2023. Emergency "proxies" will be accepted if previous arrangements have been made with your supervisor.
Our "Welcome Back" orientation will be held August 1, 2023. It will be a one-day meeting and take place at the Tohopekaliga High School auditorium. We will provide bus transportation from each of your assigned facilities to the school and then return you to your respective compounds. Please do not plan to drive as it will reduce your in-service hours from the mandatory 8 to no more than 6 and you will not be able to drive until you do a 2-hour make-up session.
Please remember the events as mentioned above are MANDATORY and you will be expected to attend. Your state required 8 hours will jeopardize your ability to start driving on the first day of school. Please plan any summer travel around these dates as they are very important to a successful start of the 2023-2024 school year.
Additional information will be forthcoming. However, if you have immediate questions, please see your area manager, supervisor or Adriana Fracasso.
Good luck and best wishes for a great new school year.
