Sheldon Schools: In-Town Bus Demand Outpaces Capacity

school busses_sxcSheldon, Iowa — The new school year is presenting transportation problems for the Sheldon Community School District.

Sheldon Schools Superintendent Robin Spears says that the District is experiencing the problem of having more students who need to ride the after school buses than they have the capacity to transport.  He says that as a result, the District is unable to guarantee that all students will have a seat on a bus to be transported to an in-town bus stop.

Spears says the District encourages, whenever possible, that students walk or ride their bicycles to school, or have someone drop them off in the morning and pick them up at the end of the day.

He says that if you choose to rely on school transportation for in-town bus stops, you are requested to have a backup plan in place, just in case your child is not able to utilize school transportation due to the bus being filled to capacity.

The Sheldon Community School District thanks you in advance for your cooperation.
