Late start Thursday bus route information

Good evening,

As Marshwood Middle and High Schools begin the “late start” Thursday schedule tomorrow, September 9th, please know that the buses for Rollinsford students who attend MMS and MHS will run on the same schedule as they do on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.   Unlike in years past, there is no separate Thursday schedule.   Supervision is being provided at both schools for students.

For your reference, the link to the bus routes is below:

We apologize for the late notice.  If you have any questions, please contact me or you can contact First Student Transportation at 692-4406.

6th Grade Informational Forum

Monday, October 28, 2019
6:30 PM
Rollinsford Grade School Gym

Please join us for a public forum to discuss the feasibility of sending our 6th graders to Marshwood. The purpose of the forum is to hear from you all and answer your questions or concerns.

A panel of experts will take questions and provide information on:

– The advantages of students remaining in a K-6 environment
– The advantages of students entering middle school for 6th grade
– The financial impact of sending 6th grade to Marshwood

There will be plenty of time for questions and comments from the public. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Notice to Marshwood Middle/High School Parents

To parents of Marshwood Middle and High School students,

Important information about Marshwood busing

Morning pickup times: It has come to our attention that this past week Marshwood Middle and High School students have been getting to school late. Due to this, the bus schedule will be revised to pick up students approximately 10-15 minutes earlier. This will begin on Wednesday, September 14.

The online schedule will be updated on Monday once more accurate times have been determined. You can find it here: Please note the revised date to be sure you have the most up-to-date schedule (9-06-2016 is the old schedule).

This change will not affect pick up times for RGS students.

Activities Bus: The school board voted to make a change to the activities bus, also known as the “late bus,” that picks up students from Marshwood Middle and High Schools at roughly 4:05 and brings them to their homes. MSAD 35 has agreed to allow Rollinsford students to ride their late bus that drops students off at Central School in downtown South Berwick at no cost. Due to low numbers in ridership last year and the cost to Rollinsford taxpayers, the board determined the responsible decision would be to take MSAD 35 up on this offer.

Please note, there will be no supervision provided for students when they get to Central School. Students will be responsible for walking or getting a ride to where they need to go once they get off the bus. This change will begin Monday, October 3.

If you have any questions or concerns about either of these changes, please email the school board or come to our next meeting, Oct. 12, 6:30 pm in the RGS gym.

Sincerely, The Rollinsford School Board
