Possible Route Consolidations and Re-assignments

We want to be up-front and let families know that there is a strong possibility that we will need to consolidate and/or re-assign bus routes in the coming weeks. Nationwide bus driver shortages also affect us locally. These shortages, along with illnesses, injuries, retirements and resignations, affect our ability to run our regular routes. The transportation department is currently assessing all routes to identify changes that will result in the least impact to our families. We will communicate any changes as soon as we can so that families can plan accordingly. Families, if you can transport your student, or work with neighbors and friends to arrange carpools, it would be greatly appreciated.

How can you help?

Join our team! We have an incredible team of drivers, many who have been with us for a decade or longer. It is a great opportunity for retirees, stay-at home-parents, or anyone needing a flexible schedule. Bus drivers receive medical and dental benefits, paid sick leave, and paid holidays, while also enjoying summers, school breaks, holidays and weekends off.
