We would like to thank parents for their cooperation and understanding regarding this week’s adjustments to bus routes. We would also like to thank Mr. Brett Lawless for working with parents and staff members to communicate the changes in a timely manner. We have five licensed drivers for five routes, and no licensed substitute drivers. With only two bus drivers available this week, it certainly took communication and cooperation between Mr. Lawless and our parents to get the job done; and, everyone rose to meet the challenge. With a nationwide bus driver shortage, our district is always looking to hire drivers. Please encourage anyone you know who might be interested in becoming a bus driver to contact us.
