Dear Parents and Guardians:
As the result of concerns for the safety of students, we have taken the step of suspending a student transportation contractor for your school. We have not taken this action lightly as we know it has a significant impact on families and our busing system. However, the District could no longer permit service to continue without the confidence it is being provided in a safe manner for students.
The District does have a contingency plan in place to provide student transportation to those schools and routes impacted, though due to logistics this plan cannot be implemented until Monday, January 23, 2017. Schools will remain open for instruction. We ask impacted families to attempt to make their own transportation arrangements to school for the next two days.
We thoroughly apologize for the inconvenience we know this is going to cause families, however, we feel we have been left with no choice but to take these steps to maintain student safety.
Should you have questions about the specific operations for your school, please contact the school administration.
For Holy Trinity High students this means that no buses will be operational for Thursday Jan 19th and Friday Jan 20th. If alternate transportation cannot be arrange students will be recorded as excused from class.
Senior High students should note that because of the disruption, exams will not begin until Wednesday, January 25th. The entire exam schedule has been moved ahead by 2 days. A copy of the revised schedule can be found below.
