Sept 24, 2015; District Provides Ongoing Daily Transportation Update

Morning bus runs to BMS/RHS arrived on time today, with the exception of Bus #8, which arrived about five minutes late, due to a substitute driver. Allways East, our transportation vendor, expects to assign a veteran driver who knows the area to that bus run with days. All CLS buses arrived before 9:00 am this morning. 

This afternoon, all BMS/RHS and CLS bus runs departed their schools on time.  As we have been doing, we will continue to keep you updated as promised until our transportation program is providing satisfactory service for all students and parents every day.

Parents with any specific questions, concerns, and/or complaints about their child’s transportation, specifically about their bus route or schedule, ongoing or new, now or in the future, should continue to call:
