Snow Routes & Limited Bus Transportation
Limited Bus Routes are used throughout the year for snow, ice, or other situations that cause buses to alter normal routes. During inclement weather, the District tries to have information on radio/TV by 6:00 AM but limited routes may be used without notification due to conditions and time. Please make sure your child’s school has updated emergency phone and email contacts.
Always keep in mind snow routes and limited transportation may NOT be announced – light snow or unexpected ice may close roads without announcements. It’s also important to keep in mind that because conditions can change so rapidly and vary from one area to another throughout the district, that some roads may be closed to school buses without notice. The rule of thumb for school bus transportation: if in doubt that the bus can make it up or down your road, assume it will not and send your child(ren) to the main road.
Parents always know the conditions in their own neighborhood best and are urged to use their judgment in sending children to school in severe weather conditions. And always make sure schools have up-to-date phone numbers (home, work and cell) for parents and emergency contacts. This is vital for communication during a major event.
