The F.L.O.W. program scheduled for Tuesday, May 16th has been canceled.
With opening of West Clermont High School and West Clermont Middle School we knew there would be an increased demand on traffic in the area of the two schools and on bus transportation. To help with the increased traffic in the area, Clough Pike will be widened between McMann Road, and Bach-Buxton Road. The construction is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed by June 30th. Additionally, West Clermont Middle School will begin the day at 7:00am and West Clermont High School will begin the day at 7:45am to allow the middle school traffic to filter out before the high school traffic arrives.
To overcome transportation issues such as geography, the length of the routes, and the ability of a bus to complete the middle school route and then get to their elementary route the district has to absorb 8 buses to make sure they can make the run to West Clermont Middle School and then turn around and make their elementary routes. To accommodate this, Brantner Elementary will be moved to being a late starting school beginning with the 2017-2018 school year. The school day at Brantner will now run from 9:20am – 3:55pm.
Brantner will join Holly Hill, Merwin, Summerside, Willowville, and Withamsville Tobasco as late starting schools. Both Amelia Elementary and Clough Pike Elementary will still begin the day at 8:20am.
Together, we make a family. On Wednesday, November 22nd from 5:00-7:30 pm, WCHS will be hosting the 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Feast for families in need throughout the West Clermont School District. Please consider helping make this a warm and welcome holiday for all community members by making a donation to the dinner.
You can now look up your child's bus route online! This is for students in grades K-8 only. Visit https://elink.nationalexpresscorp.com/ElinkWestClermontCincinnattiOH to find your child's bus route information. You will need your child's student ID number (ex: 000000) and their date of birth (ex: 01012016 no slashes). If you need your child's student ID number please contact your child's school.
