Parent Letter Bus Transportation 12.05.22

December 5, 2022

Dear UCSD Families:

Due to an unforeseen driver shortage by our bus contractor, we will be implementing an alternate bus schedule until further notice. One of the bus drivers needs to leave town for a family emergency and I have been notified there are no available alternate drivers at this time. I am working with the bus company to find a resolution as soon as possible. Please see the attached “One Bus Schedule” as this is the schedule we will use beginning the afternoon of December 5th and continuing until further notice as more drivers become available. Our commitment remains to provide an exemplary education and while transportation may need to look differently, transportation will continue for our students.

Major changes include shifting students from Unisea and Westward to bus 1 for the mornings and afternoon routes. The valley will be serviced by school vehicles. Again, please look at the “one bus schedule” to determine the appropriate pick up times. As this is a new schedule, thank you for understanding the times will remain flexible and for having your students to the bus stop early.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school offices or me directly if you have any questions regarding the temporary changes. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to have two buses running as soon as possible. Happy holidays to you and your families and as always thank you for allowing us to be a part of your children’s education.

Best regards,

Jim Wilson
