TRANSPORTATION EMERGENCY INFORMATION
Winter Weather Warning
The holiday seasons bring unpleasant reminders that bad weather and dangerous driving conditions are here. Because the Havre Public Schools transports the majority of its students to and from school, families are reminded to be alert for weather or other emergency conditions that might alter the transportation schedules and routes.
The district's transportation director and superintendent decide early in the morning if students can safely reach school in cases of ice, snow, or other conditions. When a decision is reached, it is relayed to the local radio stations (KOJM, KPQX and KXEI).
Since our district uses rural buses to transport in-city students, bad weather conditions may alter in-city route schedules a few minutes. Students should go to the bus stop just 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive.
Havre Bus Drivers' Number One Concern is YOUR CHILD!
Each day the Havre Public School buses log nearly 1,300 miles and deliver 1,000 students to our schools and return them home safely. Our goal is your child's safe ride!
Emergency Plans are Important
Each family should have a plan covering what to do when their children leave late (or not at all) or arrive home early because of an emergency transportation situation. Where can the child go if help is needed? Who would care for your child until you arrive? Is there someone your youngster can call in an emergency situation? Is your child locked out of the house if he/she misses the bus?
LISTEN TO YOUR RADIO FOR INFORMATION
Morning announcements concerning school closures or late schedules will be reported by the radio stations. Announcements will begin by 6:00 AM and will be repeated as often as possible. Schools will be in session and transportation will follow normal schedules and routes unless otherwise announced.
All schools will be closed for one day only. All meetings, field trips, after-school activities, etc. will be cancelled for the day unless specific exceptions are mentioned.
*School Open, Limited Bus Transportation:
Some days only in-city buses may run.
*School Open, One [or more] Hours Late:
Buses are delayed and school will begin late, but students will be dismissed at the regular time unless otherwise announced.
