The School Pool program is a free carpool matching service for families whose children attend school within the state of Delaware. Parents fill out a short application form, describing their transportation needs. The RideShare staff will then enter this information into the School Pool database and attempt to match them with a family looking to share the ride. If matches are found parents will receive a list of potential carpool partners. They are then free to contact these individuals to set up a carpool.
Give School Pool a try during this busy season. School Pool may be the answer to your transportation needs.
To register for School Pool or for more information contact RideShare Delaware 1-888-RIDE-MATCH or visit www.ridesharedelaware.org
District Calendar Information for the End of the Year: The last pupil day has been moved from June 8 to June 10 as students missed two days in March; March 2 and 3, due to inclement weather. The last teacher day will be June 11.
All grades will meet the number of hours as required by the State .
June 10 and 11 are weather-related contingency days. In the event the district misses less than two days, the calendar will be shortened by the appropriate number of days. Any additional days lost because of bad weather or forced closings will be made up with the cancellation of the following in-service day: February 2. If additional days are needed, above and beyond the two weather-related contingency days and the in-service day listed, they will be added at the end of the school year, so the total school year for teachers does not exceed 188 days, and the student year does not fall below 1060 student hours.
