Animals in the Classroom at 9-R - From Pets to Curriculum

Recently the 9-R community has been discussing the enforcement of the existing district policy, JLIF, or Service Animals in Schools.

Student IDs Reminder

This is a friendly reminder for 9-R families that we are now using Student IDs for all students, all grade levels, for use both on route and activity buses, for City Transit services and for use in our school libraries. Students in the secondary level have IDs that are specific to their school site, while elementary-aged student IDs have the 9-R logo on it as to not designate school site. IDs for elementary students also come with a badge holder and a clip so students can clip the IDs to their bags or other belongings to prevent loss.
