ROADS NOT SUITABLE FOR SCHOOL BUS USE DUE TO WEATHER AND ALTERNATE BUS STOP NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES
If Loudoun County experiences severe weather that results in certain roads being determined to not be suitable for school bus use, then alternate bus stops will be used.
To determine the condition of roads, they are visited and observed by members of the Transportation Division to see the effect of the weather. The information about roads not suitable for school bus use and the alternate bus stop to be used is sent to affected households by Connect Ed message.
SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!
