Buses have tough time in morning commute; budget info online
At least three Spotsylvania County school buses ran into problems getting children to school this morning despite the division starting schools two hours later than usual.
Here are a few details about the first two.
My colleague Jeff Branscome is working on a story that addresses that for tomorrow’s paper.
Coincidentally, Superintendent Jerry Hill sent a message to parents yesterday to address criticism the division received after Wednesday’s snow. In it, he explains the challenges involved in having an early release and issues that come into play in making decisions related to weather.
Also, all after-school activities for today have been cancelled. High school parent conferences have been moved to Feb. 2; middle school conferences have been moved to Feb. 3.
I spent the morning at the School Board’s budget work session, which I’ll be writing up for tomorrow’s paper.
In the meantime, you can check online to see the data the board looked at. It’s under “School Board” via the Spotsylvania County Schools web site.
