Is everyone ready for some road construction? If you are like us, we are dreading the closing of 196. As of now, here is the district’s plan. The roads will be shut down Tuesday, February 28th. On that day, buses will begin running approximately 15 minutes earlier. If you ride a route bus, please contact your driver if they haven’t given you a new time when they will be stopping at your house in the morning. If you ride a shuttle bus, you MUST arrive at your school where you get picked up by 7:40. Buses will begin loading then so they can leave at 7:45. The detour we are planning on using for the shuttle between schools is shown in the picture. We will go south on Meadowlark Road to 50th Street, then east to Diamond Rd and north to Potwin. We plan on this adding approximately 15 minutes to the shuttle. In the afternoon, the shuttle will also be approximately 15 minutes longer as well. This means the buses will be dropping off students about 15 minutes later than they are right now. On the 23rd and 24th, Thursday and Friday this week, we will be running the afternoon shuttle on the detour to make sure our times will be correct for the 28th when 196 is closed. So on the 23rd and 24th, students will be dropped off later than normal. We apologize that we have to make the day longer for some students.
