BL Schools offers free busing for summer school

Submitted Article
Big Lake Schools is about to start its 13th year of offering summer school, but for the first time ever busing will be available upon request.
“We are excited to be offering busing this year,” said Superintended Miller. “We wanted any family with a student who would benefit from summer school to be able to sign them up for school without having to worry about the transportation obstacle.”
The availability of busing will be on a year-to-year basis going forward.
A continuing service for those in summer school this year is the summer food program. Thanks to state and federal funding, breakfast and lunch will be available to students at no cost.
Invitation letters were sent to families with a child who may benefit from summer school during the first few weeks in April. Although the registration deadline has passed, Big Lake Schools is still accepting students for the summer school program.
Parents who still want to register their child should send in their registration forms as soon as possible. For questions regarding the summer school program, please contact your child’s school.
