Today, we will again have to adjust and combine our bus routes due to a shortage of bus drivers. Students who ride the busses that run on FM 1002 and FM 1795 will be a part of this combination. We expect the last group of students to be dropped off around 5:30 pm. This is the same route combination that the district ran for a couple of days last week. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working on finding more bus drivers in the district. Thank you for your patience.
