• Our priority is to ensure that all students who wish to return to school can do so on September 1 with access to five days per week of in-person learning and maintain an in-person instructional model by following a universal masking strategy.

Triple Routing Start Time Changes

  • Despite extensive recruitment efforts, we still lack the number of bus drivers needed to run our customary two-route system. Unfortunately, the combination of a continued shortage of drivers and a need for more busses to bring nearly all VASD students back to five days of in-person instruction requires a shift in practice. 

    As a result, we made the necessary decision to begin triple routing in the fall. This means that drivers must pick up and drop off students three separate times (loops) each morning and afternoon. The following charts show the new start and end times for each grade level: 

    We must do this to guarantee that all students have transportation to school each and every day.  There are several ways that you can help alleviate the pressure on our bus system.  

    • Families who are able should consider self-transportation and/or carpooling to school to decrease reliance on our bus transportation. You might even get to know new people in your community.
    • Those within a reasonable distance outside of the walk zone might consider walking or bicycling to school. Again, this will reduce reliance on buses, but also gives students an added advantage--it makes them more ready to learn--according to the CDC’s Health and Academic Achievement Report.  
    • Apply to become a bus driver or refer people you know that would make good candidates for driving a bus! Do you or someone you know enjoy kids and have time to spare? Drivers earn above-average wages, up to $5,000 as a sign-on bonus, paid training, and enjoy a flexible schedule. Apply online at badgerbus.com/jobs and be sure to select Verona.  

    Remember, kids can’t GO to school if they can’t GET to school.
