Just before winter break, we celebrated the retirement of a bus driver and the career move of our Transportation Supervisor. These two employees played key roles in transporting our students and we are grateful to them and all of our transportation staff.

We are feeling the pressure from the departure of these two people from our Transportation department. We are essentially now lacking two drivers to transport students. Our Human Resources department has posted our need for Bus Drivers in our district. While we recruit bus drivers, we are truly feeling the emptiness of our two long-time employees.


During our recruitment efforts for bus drivers, we are exploring options for training drivers locally as an incentive for anyone looking for a new career driving our students.  


We are working as quickly as we can, while also working to make meaningful decisions that support our long-term transportation needs.


If you are or know anyone who might be interested in a career driving school buses, please contact Laurie Crothers, our Human Resources Specialist - or via phone at 360-466-3171.
