The New Milford Public School District is providing an update on bus staffing shortages. The district's website will be updated on current bus runs that have issues daily as needed at 5:30am for the morning runs and 11am for the afternoon bus runs, and then again at 7:30pm for any new changes for the next day.
All-Star Transportation has worked with New Milford to offer an option for buses that cannot run day by day throughout the rest of this school year. Starting Tuesday, All-Star is creating a second bus run for the middle and high school for pick up between 8:45 AM and 9:15 AM at their normal bus stop, or between 9:50 AM and 10:30 AM if it is going to the lower grade schools. Afternoon pick ups will be between 3:45 and 4 or 4:30 and 4:45 respectively.
Parents choosing to pick their child up in the afternoon is asked to contact the school to notify them. Students will not be marked tardy if they are on the late morning runs. Superintendent Alisha Di Corpo cautioned that this service is not available if schools are delayed or dismissed early.
