Rain damaged roads limit bus service for some school districts


SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) – Several area school districts have suspended or rerouted bus service while crews work to repair damage on several roads, caused by last week’s heavy rain and flooding.

Tattnall County Schools will resume normal schedules on Monday, March 9th, but school administrators are asking parents, who live on impassable roads, to “make arrangements to either meet the bus at the nearest safe location, which is usually a paved road, or transport their children to and from school until roads are repaired.”

Evans County Schools will be open Monday, but there will be lots of alternate bus routes. Parents should check the district’s Facebook Page

In Evans County, all dirt roads continue to be closed to traffic with the exception of residents. The Evans County School District says after conferring with the County Roads Department, alternate bus pickup sites have been created.

Parents are asked to have their children at the pickup site about 10 minutes earlier than they are normally picked up. If you have any questions, please call the Transportation Department at 912-739-3549.

Toombs County Schools are open Monday, but parents are asked to check the district’s Facebook Page for transportation information.
