BUS DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS

We want to advise students and families that STWDSTS may encounter higher than normal rates of absence for school vehicle drivers. We know this can be challenging for families. Please remember to support your local school vehicle driver. If the driver is covering a late route and is not your regular driver, they have most likely already completed their regularly assigned route and are helping to make sure that your children can get to and from school safely.
