Dear Peninsula School District Community,
We’re sharing a reminder that due to the current bus driver shortage in our district, we are consolidating some of our bus routes. This means some bus routes will be discontinued, while others will be adding additional stops.
Changes to bus routes will start on Monday, November 8.
Please Double Check Your Child’s Bus Route:
Our transportation team has worked hard to finalize logistics for pick-up and drop-off times of impacted routes, and has needed to make timing adjustments this week after the initial posting of new bus routes.
Please visit our transportation webpage to review your student’s bus route.
Please have your student be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time. As bus drivers are adjusting to the new routes, please know buses may run up to 10 minutes late. We appreciate your patience.
We continue our best efforts to recruit and train new drivers. The driver shortage is nationwide and affects trucking companies and public transportation, as well as school buses. If you are interested in a job driving buses, or know of someone who might be, please visit our website.
We know the challenges any changes to bus routes may cause for your family and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
