Second Semester Transportation Changes

Posted on: December 21, 2021

Our district will lose two of our most veteran drivers effective December 31st, 2021.  We want to wish Judy Schuster and Roxane Tenhundfeld the best in their retirement – they will be greatly missed.  Our district has been able to fill these openings despite the lack of school bus drivers in the job market and thus will not need to cancel these routes as so many districts around us have been forced to do.  Please join us in welcoming Amanda and Jim to our transportation team!

Due to the two retirements, as well as some other route changes due to time/capacity, we will have a number of drivers who will be running new or different routes than they did for the first semester.  Changes to bus numbers and stop times have been communicated in separate emails to those impacted.  However, as drivers learn their new routes and new students, we do expect some delays in routes for the first few days.  We greatly appreciate your patience with our new drivers during this transition and hope that delays are both minimal and temporary.  If any permanent changes to route times are necessary after this first week or so with new drivers, they will be communicated directly to parents as soon as possible. 

We hope that everyone is enjoying our winter break and the extra time with your families.  Happy Holidays!
