Limited Bus Transportation 2014-2015

Winter may bring weather conditions that require school schedule delays or closure. Even when road conditions in the valley appear passable, bad weather on the hill often causes hazardous driving conditions and impact the district’s ability to operate buses safely.  Expect buses to be late during severe weather. If buses cannot get up the hills on afternoon routes, students will be returned to their schools. 

Radio and television stations will be announcing schedule changes between 6 and 8 a.m. If Sumner School District is not mentioned, normal operations will prevail.

  • SCHOOLS CLOSED means schools will be closed for the day.  All afterschool and evening activities will be canceled unless otherwise announced.
  • WEDNESDAY LATE START MORNINGS  If there is inclement weather on Wednesday mornings and a schedule change is not announced, all bus routes and schools will operate on the Wednesday late start schedule.
  • EARLY DISMISSAL and DELAYED START  In the event of a change in school operations due to inclement weather, information will be posted on the District Web site. Families may also receive e-mail notification through School Messages.  The Emergency Hotline will have recorded updates.
  • EMERGENCY PLANS  Each family should have a plan covering what to do when children arrive home early due to an emergency or weather-related situation. Please develop a plan and practice it with your child. If you will not be home, instruct your child as to where he or she should go in the event of an early dismissal due to emergency conditions.  What is the best route home if your child cannot be delivered to the normal bus stop? Where could your child go if he or she needed help? Who would care for him or her until you arrive? Is there someone your child could call to calm any concerns he or she might have?

EMERGENCY HOTLINE:  253.891.6001
