During inclement weather, the required transportation will be provided. However, services may be modified to ensure both driver and student safety and welfare. Traffic conditions may require students to spend additional time en route to school, special activities, programs or home. Buses could be delayed due to the inclement weather. Drivers will assess road conditions and will make additional stops as necessary to ensure student safety. Consideration is given to issues that may arise as a result of conditions of both roadways and sidewalks. Drivers have been notified of specific locations, provided by parents/guardians, where additional stops may be necessary.
Please refer to the 2014-2015 Cancel, Delay, Dismiss Instructions for information regarding Two (2) Hour Delayed Openings and Cancellations located under the Information & Documents for Parents. Further information can also be found under School Closings.
As you know, we have experienced some challenges with transportation and are working through them with First Student. Please know that your concerns are shared by us. We agree that it is critical that students are getting home in a timely manner, that phone calls to First Student's office are answered and returned, and that student routes are correct.
If you need to reach the First Student office, please call them at 742-5984. If that number is not answered, please call either your child's school or the Superintendent's office (516-6800) for assistance. Thank you for your patience. We will keep you updated as we work through this.
