The nationwide school bus driver shortage has hit home for one local district, as they’ve been forced to cancel classes today!
Administrators at North Adams-Jerome Schools announced Sunday that classes would be canceled today, due to a lack of drivers.
Officials said they’re working on a plan to resume classes on Tuesday. Families will be notified of Tuesday’s statues via Facebook, Robocall and Robotext.
In a social media post on Sunday, district officials issued a call for anyone interested in being a bus driver to call the district at 517-287-4214, or email Randy Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Analysts say driver shortages were on the rise prior to the COVID-19 pandemic–they have reached critical levels across the country this year, affecting nearly every district to some degree.
