Transportation delays Oct. 5, Oct. 6
Our transportation department has a significant number of adjustments to make Thursday, Oct. 5, and Friday, Oct. 6,  we want you to know about them.
 
We safely transport thousands of students to and from school each day, but we also need 8-15 buses to carry them to athletic and extra-curricular activities on any given day. Those activity buses (and drivers) come from our regular routes, which requires “doubling up” on some of our afternoon buses.
 
This week, we also have several drivers out sick, affecting both morning and afternoon schedules.
 
All of these arrangements create delays, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we make every effort to get all our students where they need to be.
 
If, based on the information provided here, you want to consider making other arrangements for your child, please follow the protocols in place for notifying the school of your plans.
