Inclement Weather Transportation Procedures

s_transportation

Winter may bring weather conditions that require program delays or closure. Even when road conditions in town appear passable, bad weather in outlying areas often cause hazardous driving conditions and impact the agency’s ability to operate buses safely. Safety is our primary concern.

Expect morning & evening buses to be late during inclement weather. Our goal is to make information available to families/caregivers about delays/ closure or changes in the transportation schedule by 6 a.m.

Call the Transportation Hotline 793-4700 ext. 7 or use one of the media outlets listed below for the “School Closing Network” and updated information on transportation delays, changes or closures.

Radio and television stations will be announcing schedule changes between 6 and 8 a.m.
