Bulloch County Schools' elementary and middle/high bus routes ran smoothly this morning and this afternoon despite the weather. "There are still a few roads that are closed by the Bulloch County Emergency Management Agency, and we cannot go down those, but other than that things went well this afternoon," BCS Transportation Director Paul Webb said.
During the afternoon elementary routes that began at 2:20 p.m., one bus in the Stilson Elementary School route became stuck temporarily, but the driver worked her way out safely without incident.
During the middle/high school afternoon routes that began at 3:30 p.m., rain began to fall again. No buses became stuck during these routes, but numerous drivers in the Nevils, Brooklet, Langston Chapel and Julia P Bryant-zone routes called in to report that water had begun to run over the roads.
Continued rain will create worsening conditions in some areas for Wednesday morning. Drivers are attempting to contact parents in these areas about meeting them at locations away from the traditional bus stops that are on higher/dryer ground and more easily accessible for buses.
Again, student drivers and parents are encouraged to obey all road closure signs and consider safety first for any other roads that appear hazardous. Bulloch County Schools will continue to communicate with Bulloch County EMA to determine the best plan of action for safety.
