Good afternoon! Freshman Orientation Days are scheduled for Tuesday, August 26, and Wednesday, August 27. These are regular school days beginning at 8:04 a.m. and ending at 2:28 p.m.
It was our expectation that we would have bussing for students on those days but we have been advised by MOESC that they are not able to provide bussing before September 1. This has not been a problem in the past as we have had students in for Orientation Days in August for several years now, always with bussing. Unfortunately we were not advised of the change in their policy until the end of last week and we have spent this week trying to negotiate bussing for those days, regrettably without success. I assure you that if we had known earlier in the summer that bussing would not be available, we most certainly would have adjusted our calendar in some fashion but at this late date it is not possible to do so.
Students coming from Brick and Neptune school districts will have bussing August 26 and August 27. All students will have bussing on September 3.
I am sorry for the inconvenience this will cause some parents. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
We are looking forward to welcoming the Freshman to St. Rose on Tuesday!
Thank you and God bless.
