Transportation Update (September 1st 2019)

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

In previous communications, I indicated that updates to bus routes would be posted on the District website on Sunday, September 1st, at 6:00 PM. However, after meeting with principals and the Transportation Department, we collectively decided to wait on publishing updated bus routes to the Transportation webpage until they have been thoroughly vetted by principals, school-based administrative assistants, and North Reading Transportation (NRT). I am anticipating that this process will take a few days and that new routes will be posted late next week.

The rationale for this change is that I don't want to have the Transportation Department to continue posting updated routes that could cause additional confusion/frustration with our families. Secondly, it's essential that schools have time to review each student's transportation plans to and from school to ensure that they are accurate and safe.

I appreciate your patience and hope that the final adjustments help support our family and students better. 

Respectfully, 

Greg Martineau
