A Note from Trent Miene, MFL MarMac Transportation Director:
Due to the shortage of full-time school bus drivers, we were forced to cut our daily bus routes from nine down to eight. In doing so, some of the routes look totally different from previous years. Please take some time to read through the routes with your student(s) and make sure they understand which bus to get on, especially in the afternoons going home from school, as some students ride a different bus in the afternoons due to daycare arrangements.
There are a few rules for the bus that are going to be enforced that parents need to be aware of:
- Only water is allowed to be drank on the bus.
- NO FOOD to be eaten on the bus.
- Keep cell phones and computers to yourselves.
There are other rules as well that your student(s) will hear about, but I just wanted you to be aware of these 3 especially. The food and drink are the two big ones. As we all know, if we allow it, it will most likely end up on the floor of the bus, and that just makes a huge sticky mess.
Our drivers and myself, take great pride in offering a SAFE and CLEAN way for students to get to and from school every single day. We look forward to another successful year. Thank you for your time and understanding.
