Further Bus Route Adjustments

As I reiterated last week in my message regarding route changes, like many school districts we are currently experiencing a bus driver shortage. We will be discussing this shortage at tonight’s Cohasset School Committee Meeting. Until we have solved the current shortage, the following adjustments will continue:

  • Elementary students on Bus 3 should please arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes earlier than usual in the morning. Also, we are anticipating that students and families of elementary students on Bus 5 may experience a few minutes of delay in being picked up in the morning.
  • In the afternoon, elementary students on Bus 5 will experience some delays on the ride home. We anticipate that the last stop for the afternoon for elementary bus 5 will be approximately 4:25PM, although we are hopeful the drop-offs may be sooner.

In addition, beginning on Friday, January 7, 2022, we are adding the need for the following adjustments:

  • Middle and high school students on bus 5 should please be at their bus stops 10 minutes earlier than usual in the morning.
  • Elementary students on bus 7 should please arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes earlier than usual in the morning. Also, we anticipate that there may be a slight delay for pick up for elementary students on bus 6 in the morning,
  • In the afternoon, there will be a delay for elementary students on bus 6 in the afternoon with a last home drop off of approximately 4:25PM, although we are hopeful the drop-offs may be sooner.

Efforts are being taken to ensure that students have a positive, safe, and supervised experience when at school because of early drop off or late pick up. Thank you all for your patience, as we work together to get through these difficult times.
