Inclement Weather

Snow Routes and Alternative Snow Route Stops
During times of inclement weather when the district calls for snow routes there are roads and areas that are not provided school bus service.  On those days, affected families will need to choose whether to have their children attend school, provide transportation, use regular routes if running, or use an alternative bus stop if available.  This is a parental decision and should be made with care.  Parents who decide to utilize transportation on a “Snow Route” day do so with the following conditions.

Parents should not put their children in a situation where they could be left stranded at a bus stop.

  1. Times on snow routes and alternative bus stops can vary greatly due to weather conditions, traffic delays, and bus rerouting.
  2. In a worse case situation the school bus may not be able to make it to a bus stop.  Parents should be prepared for this scenario.
  3. Alternative snow stops may not be on the same route normally used.
  4. Alternative snow stops are usually significantly further from your residence than the regular bus stop.
  5. Parents using an alternative snow stop for service to school should stay with their child at the bus stop until the bus arrives.  DO NOT leave children unattended at alternative snow stops.
  6. Parents using an alternative snow stop for service to home should be at the alternative snow bus stop prior to the bus arriving and wait until the bus arrives.
