WHAT TO DO ABOUT SCHOOL WHEN THE WEATHER IS BAD
Follow these links for the 2012-2013 Snow Routes
When the weather turns cold, it’s time to prepare for possible snow and ice. School and bus schedules may change during severe weather. When this happens, there are some things you must know.
ARE SCHOOLS OPERATING ON REGULAR SCHEDULE? WILL THERE BE SNOW ROUTES?
Also, you may tune in to your local radio or TV station. You will hear special announcements giving school closures or delayed starting times beginning at 6:00 a.m.
If there are no announcements, schools will operate on the regular schedule. The bus garage, district office or school office should be used only as a last choice for gaining information. We need our phone lines accessible for emergency situations.
WILL THE SCHOOL BUS ROUTES CHANGE?
If school is delayed, your bus will pick you up later than usual. For example - if school is starting 1 hour late and your normal pick up time is 8:40-the bus will now be picking you up at 9:40.
For students living in certain areas, their pick up and drop off stops may change. Some areas in the district are difficult for school buses to maneuver when there is ice and snow on the road. Children who live in these areas may need to catch their bus at an alternate location. These are called SNOW ROUTES. Follow the links above for details.
HOW WILL I KNOW/REMEMBER IF I LIVE ON A SNOW ROUTE?
Find out ahead of time. Look at the snow route schedule. Talk to your bus driver before it snows.
If you do have a transportation question or concern other than, ‘is the bus running on schedule?’, please call the Transportation Office at 383-2060.
To find out if school is running and on time remember to use the Operations & Weather Information Line 383-2070.
Information will be broadcast on local radio, along with information sent home with students. KGMI (790 AM), KLYN (106.5 FM), KBFW (930 AM), and KAFE (104.3 FM).
