Preston County Schools wanted to communicate about the issues associated with a series of bus cancellations, specifically recent cancellations of the bus servicing the Bull Run and Sunny Hill areas of Masontown. At this time, the district is experiencing a significant shortage of substitute drivers that has been further taxed with multiple driver medical leaves, a recent resignation, and additional day-to-day absences. Preston County Schools is attempting to cover as many routes as possible using all available resources with the Transportation Director, multiple mechanics, and employees in other service classifications driving on a nearly daily basis. The recent vacancy in the West Area is currently posted and a course to certify additional substitute drivers is ongoing but is a timely process. Attempts to rotate available substitute drivers to the current unfilled route will be made and the transportation department is looking at other options to try and remedy the situation as soon as possible. We greatly apologize for the current circumstances and appreciate your ongoing patience as we work through these difficult issues.
