DISTANCE LEARNING PLAN

In the case of inclement weather and/or emergencies, the MBSD has created a Distance Learning Plan. This plan contains all the information you need to know about shifting to remote learning.  If you have additional questions, please contact your child’s school. 

INCLEMENT WEATHER, BUS TRANSPORTATION, & SNOW BUS ROUTES

Hazardous weather, floods, or unexpected emergencies may force changes in bus transportation schedules and pick-up/drop-off points for Mount Baker Students. Information is announced only when there is a closure or schedule change. Please remember:

  • Buses may be running late due to road conditions.

  • Due to adverse conditions and for their personal safety, please have your student stand as far back from the edge of the road, prior to the bus stopping.

  • The bus cannot stop on inclines.

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 Bus Routes.

Find out ahead of time if you live on a Snow Bus Route by checking the schedule and talking with your bus driver before it snows. If you have a transportation question or concern (other than, "is the bus running on schedule?"), please call the Transportation Office at (360) 383-2060.
