Continued bus driver shortage may impact bus routes
Due to COVID and Snohomish Health District guidelines, we are experiencing an increasingly severe shortage of school bus drivers. Your students' transportation could be affected in the near future.
What parents/guardians need to do
Families need to closely monitor communication from the school district for potential notifications of bus route interruptions. It’s important for families to have a plan for what you will do if the bus route is canceled for that day or significantly delayed. Routes may also be adjusted on a temporary basis to meet the driver shortage. Route changes of any kind will be communicated to all affected families. We will continue to make every effort to service all existing routes by utilizing all CDL driver resources at our disposal. This includes Mechanics and all office staff which may result in delayed responses when calling the Transportation office.
