The Matanuska Susitna Borough School District’s transportation department was alerted by its busing contractor, First Student, that there is a shortage of bus drivers due to Covid-19. On Monday and throughout the week the schools will remain open but the Administration is canceling regular education bus service for selected schools.
The cancellation impacts specific routes for Palmer High School, Palmer Junior Middle School, Sherrod Elementary, Butte Elementary, Sutton Elementary, Academy Charter, and shuttles to and from Palmer to Valley Pathways.
Special education buses will continue in all schools.
There may be other cancelations throughout the week, the administration wrote. Check with the school district for updates.
