Weather Related Delayed Openings and Early Dismissals
- During a delayed school opening all district buses will run on the delayed schedule, one or two hours later than usual, and will pick up students at the later time at all regular bus stops. All District Schools will open on the delayed time schedule, and all district schools will dismiss at the regular dismissal time.
- When an early dismissal occurs due to weather, the buses will take the students to their designated afternoon bus stop after the dismissal time. Buses will run their normal route. The bus will arrive at your stop approximately the same amount of time after the dismissal that it would arrive after a normal school dismissal.
- In isolated instances, bus drivers are authorized to utilize discretion as to whether the bus will run part or all of certain routes.
- Only students who are registered with the Transportation Office may ride the school bus during weather-related delayed openings and early dismissals.
