Snow Routes

The Transportation Department creates snow routes to facilitate student pickup/drop off on days when road conditions may be hazardous due to snow and/or ice. Some regular bus stops will not be available for students and in some cases, entire routes may have to be cancelled. We make every effort to provide transportation when possible and, in some instances, create new bus stops on main roads to pick up students residing in neighborhoods with difficult access for buses.
