School Bus Hard Surface Plan

The district has developed a plan to limit school bus routes to hard surface roads when gravel roads are unsafe or inaccessible.  This plan may be implemented when gravel roads become icy or drifted. It may also be used when soft surface roads become too muddy or rutted to travel.

 

The district will announce the implementation of its hard surface route plan using area media outlets and the Infinite Campus Emergency Messenger System. A copy of the plan will be posted to the district website and sent to parents whose children ride the bus. 

 

Every effort will be made to make decisions regarding the implementation of emergency hard surface routes by 6:30 a.m. When hard surface routes are utilized in the morning, they will also be used in the afternoon. Parents will be notified of any afternoon changes by 12:00 p.m.

 

When restricted to hard surfaces, school buses will stop at predetermined intersections of paved and gravel roads at prescribed times.  Parents will be asked to transport their children to the intersection closest to their home and wait with them for the bus to arrive. Students will not be left at a drop-off point unless a parent or guardian is there to pick them up. If no parent or guardian is at the drop-off point, the student will be returned to the school and parents will be required to pick them up as soon as possible.

 

Students living on gravel roads who cannot make it to hard surface pick-up points will not be counted absent from school, so long as their parents write a note to the school explaining the situation. They may also participate in remote learning.
