Roanoke Co. Schools statement:
SCHOOLS DISMISSING EARLY DUE TO BUS DRIVER SHORTAGE
Parents asked to pick up students from school – no school buses will be running this afternoon
ROANOKE – Dr. Lorraine Lange has released the following statement to parents this afternoon:
“We regret that some of our school bus drivers have made a poor decision to call in sick this afternoon after dropping off students this morning so that we are not able to run buses this afternoon.
Therefore, we need your help, so we are calling to ask all parents to pick up their children from school. Elementary students should be picked up by 12:20 p.m. and secondary students should be picked up by 1:25 p.m.
Again, we regret that some of our drivers have made this poor decision and I thank you for your help as we make sure our students get home safely today.”
