Bus Route Consolidations Trigger School Day Change for SHS/SMS

BUS ROUTE CONSOLIDATION NEWS IMAGE

 

Due to ongoing bus driver shortages, beginning Monday, November 15, Sidney City Schools transportation will have to consolidate some bus routes. As a result, families should expect the following adjustments and changes for the remainder of the school year. 

 

  • High School and Middle School bus routes will start earlier in the morning - bus drivers will be in communication with HS/MS families about changes to their morning pick-up times. 
  • Sidney High School and Sidney Middle School will adjust their end-of-day release times.
    • Sidney High School Day - 7:25AM - 2:30PM
    • Sidney Middle School Day - 7:30AM - 2:40PM
  • Car pick-up traffic patterns at SMS/SHS will remain the same. 
  • K-4 routes could expect a 10-15 minute delay in drop-off times at their stop or home. 
  • Upper Valley Career Center transportation will NOT be impacted – UVCC transportation will remain the same. 

 

For those who utilize school transportation, if these adjustments impact your transportation needs and you wish to no longer utilize school transportation,  please notify your child's school. 

 

The above adjustments are our best attempt to minimize the effects of the consolidated routes and keep our elementary routes as close to their regular schedule as possible. There may be minor changes to pick-up and drop-off times as we adjust to the consolidated routes, so we thank you in advance for your flexibility and patience. 

 

Sidney City Schools' search for bus drivers, full-time and substitute, is ongoing. If you are interested in supporting our students' education by driving a bus, please contact Ron Monroe, for more information at 937-497-2206.
