As you know, all Nerge bus riders were issued a new bus pass last week accompanied by a letter from D54 noting changes due to a nationwide shortage in licensed school bus drivers. Please be sure to review the bus route number, bus stop, and pick up/drop off times as any changes go into effect today!
Students should have their bus passes attached to their backpacks in an easy to see location. Students should maintain safe distancing at their stops and wear a mask when riding the bus at all times. Kindergarten families, we will have many staff members ready to help him/her the appropriate classroom.
