Busses to run hard surfaces only

Dr. Tom Williams, Interim Superintendent of Schools for the Algona Community School District announced today that due to thawing and heavy rains the District ‘s school busses will be forced to only travel on hard surface roads beginning on Monday, March 18.  Parents of children picked up on gravel roads will meet their bus on the nearest hard surface road until further notice.  The Drivers will be contacting parents this weekend to arrange a pick up and drop off location. If the parents do not receive a call from their student’s bus driver by Sunday, March 17 at 3 p.m., they should call Merrill Mueller, Director of Transportation at 515-341-0794.  The District apologizes for this inconvenience but student safety is the primary motivation in making this decision.
