Springboro Schools cancels some bus routes for rest of week amid driver shortages

Springboro Schools has canceled some bus routes for Thursday and Friday amid driver shortages.

Buses 72 and 6 will not run on Thursday, and buses 42 and 55 will not run on Friday. However, bus 6 will provide mid-day transportation home from school for morning kindergarten and preschoolers, the district announced Wednesday in a letter to families on its website.

“As a result of staff shortages, we have an excessive number of uncovered routes. Most of the time, these routes end up being covered by our Transportation Dept. office staff and/or mechanics, with minimal disruption to the school day. Unfortunately, this will not be the case going forward this week,” the letter stated.

The district asked that families contact the school if a child is not able to attend school on the day transportation has been affected for the absence to be recorded correctly.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a bus driver for the district is asked to visit www.springboro.org/transportation.aspx.
