Limitations on Bus Trips in 2019-20

September 16, 2019 - Transportation will unfortunately not be able to honor the same number of activity and athletic trips as they have in past years due to financial and bus driver shortages, and their guidelines will be strictly enforced: 

  • 30-day request deadline with no exception.
  • All trips subject to Office for School Performance trip priority and driver availability, regardless of the 30-day deadline.
  • No staff or other adult-only trips.
  • No trips during morning and afternoon route times. 
  • Up to 12 buses and drivers per day can be accommodated for trips during the above times, including those requiring multiple buses. This limitation also applies to Band, Choir, Drama, Clubs, and Athletics.
  • No overnight or extended-hour trips of any kind, including Band, Choir, Drama, Clubs, and Athletics, unless they occur on weekends or other non-school days (Outdoor School is an exception). 
  • Transportation home from the BLAST program will no longer be provided.
