Canceled Route: 23, 25, 29, 34, 37, 38, 45, 53, 68, 71, 74, 77

Moses Lake School District is currently experiencing a critical shortage of school bus drivers. In the coming weeks, it may be necessary to cancel bus routes due to this shortage.

 

Cancellations of morning routes may occur with very little notice. We anticipate this shortage will dissipate as new drivers are added to our roster later in the month of October.  During this brief period, we will cancel the routes of drivers who are not able to report for their morning runs. Cancellations will only occur after an exhaustive search for a qualified substitute fails. Canceled morning routes will be canceled for the afternoon as well. If we run a morning route and lose a driver mid-day, we will still run the afternoon route (please expect delays in this instance).

 

We regret that this will place a real hardship on our MLSD students and families. We apologize for this situation and ask that you please bear with us as we work our way through this extremely difficult staffing period for our Transportation Department. We are currently accepting applications for substitute drivers. Please apply at www.mlsd161.org/apps/pages/employment, or call Wes Kelly at 509-766-2676.

 

***We will make every effort to have the route cancellation communicated the day before. Notice of a route cancellation will be emailed, posted on our website, and posted to our Facebook page www.facebook.com/MosesLakeSchools. You may also call our transportation department directly after 5 am (509-766-2676). ***

      HINT: You may have to increase or decrease the radius depending on your home address or try abbreviating words like 'drive' or spelling out words like 'street.'
