Winter will be arriving soon and school bus routes in the hills are especially vulnerable to developing poor road conditions. Some school bus routes have designated “alternate stops” that may be used if road conditions are too hazardous for buses to use the regular stops.
Beginning Wednesday, September 6, the school district transportation department will reduce the number of scheduled routes by combining some routes. This is a short-term solution. Updated bus route and stop times are posted on the transportation webpage.
