The Transportation Department during the week of September 11 faced some challenges with shortage of bus drivers due to absences. During these situations we've devised contingency plans that may involve combining routes and trips.
On Thursday September 14th, we had a shortage of 3 drivers. With that said, combining routes and trips were necessary. Please be assured that no route or trip had passenger numbers exceeding bus capacities. Our passengers' safety is always our primary concern.
Unfortunately we did have a missed field trip. Due to technical issues the trip was not posted in the electronic system. We do apologize for this situation and are working on improving verification processes to assure this will not happen in the future.
As always, please contact the Transportation Department if you have any questions or concerns. Your views and feedback are appreciated. We are here to provide the Bethel-Tate Local Schools the safest and optimum transportation services possible.
