Frigid weather is creating some challenges with District buses. Each day we are experiencing new trials as the cold weather takes its toll on the Bus fleet. Even though all buses are equipped with engine block heaters, in extreme conditions, sometimes even this is not enough as the fuel is turning to a gel.
Our top priority is getting children to school safely. Mechanics and drivers are working extra hours to ensure the vehicles are in proper working condition for the routes each morning. Please know that we are doing all we can to notify parents in a timely manner when buses are late, and ask for your patience with us during this cold spell.
