School Bus Service Impacted March 13 Due to Road Closure

A Message from Transportation

Dear Families of Eligible Riders of Alderwood Bus #70,

We want to inform you about a bus service interruption for Tuesday, March 13 in your area. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway is closing a section of Rural Ave at Curtis Road to work on a rail grade crossing. The road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Due to this, we will be unable to pick up and drop off your student from their normal bus stop tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13.

Families may drop off their children directly at school or at the following bus stops in the morning:

7:25 a.m. 1642 Country Lane

7:26 a.m. 4036 Jones Lane

7:28 a.m. Hoff Road and Bayon Road

Families may pick up their children at school or at the following bus stops in the afternoon:

2:52 p.m. Hoff Road and Bayon Road

2:53 p.m. 4036 Jones Lane

2:54 p.m. 1642 Country Lane

We apologize for the late notice. This closure was originally scheduled for last Friday (a no school day), but was suddenly rescheduled to tomorrow. We looked at modifying bus routes in your area, but were unable to create alternative stops that we felt would be safe for students.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact our office at 360-676-6546. Please confirm your plans with your child. We expect bus transportation to return to normal on Wednesday, March 14.
