Due to extreme amounts of rain, the following buses will not run their typical routes this afternoon (February 11) or tomorrow morning (February 12): Brinda Jarrett’s Route- school bus will not drive CR 110 and 1170 Tony Busby’s Route- school bus will not drive CR 235 Debbie Anderson’s Route- school bus will not drive Futrell Loop or CR 225 William Baney’s Route- school bus will not drive CR 367 which may result in a 10-15 minute delay in drop-offs and pickups All school bus drivers will use extreme caution on routes and will not go down any road that is impassable or unsafe to drive on. In the event that a school bus driver arrives at an impassable road, we will do our best to contact the parent of the child affected. If we cannot contact the parent, the child will need to be picked up at the school at the conclusion of the route. Parents and students are encouraged to take caution on specific routes. Students have been specifically advised to consider alternate routes for Million Dollar Road. Please continue to follow our facebook page for more information. Updates will be sent out as soon as possible as we continue to monitor the amounts of rain and impact it has on our roadways.
