A Message from the Superintendent - Bus Driver Shortage - November 16, 2021 PM Update

Dear Parents and Caregivers:

For this afternoon, the same three buses - 332 (Turtle) , 333 (Rhino), and 386 (Octopus) do not have drivers available.

Parents with students assigned to these three buses will need to arrange to pick up their children from school at the end of the day today, Tuesday, November 16, 2021.  

Later today we will be sending the anticipated schedule for tomorrow's bus availability.

Finally, if you have additional questions on this or related topics, please contact us at schoolopening@bscsd.org. If you have specific questions about your child's program, please contact their building principal so that you are able to get answers as quickly as possible. 

Thank you.

Parents of Students in Grades K-5 on Buses 332, 333, and 386: Please notify your child’s school office if you cannot transport your child to school so arrangements can be made for their instructional plan for the day. Please call the appropriate school office at:
