An Update on School Transportation
September 1, 2015
As the year begins, it's not uncommon for the Transportation Department to
have issues to work through, whether it's the time that the bus arrives or the
location of a stop. We understand that some parents have questions at this time,
and want to assure families that our Transportation Department is working to
address all of the issues that have been brought to its attention. We also
understand that families have had difficulty reaching the Transportation
Department. We apologize for this inconvenience, and want to assure
parents that all messages left are being received and issues are being followed
up on one-by-one.
If you have a question, please call the Transportation Department at 370-0160.
We will continue to work through all of them until they are addressed. Like any
other year, we expect things to go smoother over the course of this week and next
as issues are resolved. We appreciate your patience.
This year, our school district brought back its bus drivers after working with
an outside contractor. We were pleased to welcome back many drivers who had
previously worked for us and their new colleagues. In addition, we have
established a new front office, including dispatching and secretarial support.
Unlike the latter part of last year, we had a full staff of bus drivers and
monitors today as we started the year. We have already started making plans to
establish routes and communicate them to parents earlier next year.
We value our Transportation Department and look forward to returning to a level
of service that our community and students deserve.
