First Day Bus Dismissal
Five Routes to Six
This is the image for the news article titled Five Routes to Six
Today, First Student added another bus to our MES fleet. That will lower the average number of students on each bus. That's a good thing. The challenge, however, is that bus routes were re-configured from five buses to six; impacting the route numbers for many MES students. Therefore, today's dismissal was delayed by nearly 25 minutes. This afternoon, our office cross-checked addresses to route numbers and communicated with First Student and classroom teachers. As always, safety is our first priority, so the 4:02 p.m. dismissal from MES was needed to help verify destinations. The delay caused stress on some families, students, and staff members. . This evening and tomorrow morning, we're continuing to cross-reference and confirm information for its accuracy. If you have specific questions about your child's arrival, please contact our main office at 503-829-4333. We will verify your address, route number, bus stop location, and times with you and with First Student.
