Student transportation is an important service that we value and continue to make a priority. Nationally and regionally the school transportation situation is becoming challenging. School districts around the country are struggling to have enough bus drivers to provide transportation to all children. In February, the federal law for obtaining a CDL and school bus endorsement became more rigorous in terms of training requirements. This means that finding future bus drivers and sub drivers will be difficult.
Consequently, bus service as we have known it is also not a guarantee. Our goal is that all families will have bus transportation as they have known it and at this point, they will. We hope it remains this way but want you all to know now the challenge our school district is facing like all others, and the impact this could have on families. There may be days or circumstances that limit bus service for students. If this happens, information will be communicated to those affected to allow families to make arrangements.
