Thank you for all you are doing to make Midway Elementary School better each day. I know we continue to have some bumps in the road but your flexibility and patience has been extremely helpful. This week we had a bus driver shortage that has caused some of our students to wait until 3:00 to 3:30 to leave campus. The transportation department is trying to find additional drivers and if you would like to drive a bus or know anyone who would like to drive please contact our Transportation Director William Hall at the following number: 803-821-1341.
