Hill Closings

On the occasions it is determined a Williston school bus will not be driving on a hill* road during the morning pick up, we hope to be able to contact families early enough for you to get students to a stop at the bottom of the hill to catch the bus. Alternatively, during the afternoon bus runs, we will contact families to advise you that the bus will need to drop children off at the bottom of the hill, and you can meet the bus there if necessary. If no one arrives at the base of the hill road to meet younger students, they will be brought back to school until arrangements are made for them to be picked up. Please talk with your bus drivers to let them know if you are comfortable letting your child walk up the hill.

We will use the Connect 5 automated calling system to send a voice message to families on the hill roads.

*These are the hill roads: Butternut, Highlands, Porterwood, Oak Knoll, Rabbits Run, Evergreen, Fortier, Douglas, Yantz Hill, lower River Cove, Meadow Ridge, Ledgewood, Bayberry, Terrace, Jasmine, Wild Ginger, French Hill, Sunrise Drive, Sunset.

Bus E2 Starts Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017*

To help shorten the length of the afternoon bus route for students on Bus E, we are adding a bus and dividing the route. Students who get off at the St. George Villa stops will ride bus E.2. We expect these students (Bus E.2) to arrive home at approximately 3:15 (2:15 on Tuesdays). All other stops will remain on bus E.1 (no bus change).

Students will find bus E.2 parked at the front of the bus line at dismissal time.

*on Tuesdays between January 9, 2018 and the end of February, Bus E.2 will not be available. Students will ride bus E and arrive home about 2:35 pm.
