A Message from the Superintendent - Bus Shortage Grades 6-12 - Dec 1st

Good afternoon - the bus that was unavailable to transport students this morning will not be able to transport students home this afternoon. Specifically, school bus number #331 Swan (MS&HS only) remains without a bus driver due to a number of our bus drivers being put on quarantine for close contact with a positive COVID-19 case or being sick. 

Parents with students assigned to this bus will need to arrange to pick up their children from school at the end of the day today, Wednesday, December 1, 2021.   

The High and Middle School late bus runs are available today and will run as scheduled.

Good morning to you all. Once again we have bus routes that cannot be covered on Wednesday morning, December 1, 2021. Those school buses are #331 (Swan) for Middle and High School students only and #353 Ostrich (Private school).

Parents of Students in Grades 6-12 on Bus #331: Please notify the Middle School at 518-884-7200 ext. 4306 or High School at 518-884-7150 if your child cannot be transported so that arrangements can be made for their instructional plan for the day.

We will notify you as soon as possible about arrangements for the Wednesday afternoon’s bus runs and late bus runs as well.

Our continued thanks for your help and understanding.
