    Fall Bus Safety Reminders

    As we transition to colder weather and darker mornings, the Solon Schools Transportation Department is reminding families and drivers in the community of several important safety protocols. Additionally, we want to reinforce the changes that were necessary this school year due to staffing challenges. Some bus stops this year are in different locations than families were used to seeing and students may have slightly longer walks to the stop this year. However, the choice was between lengthening the distance from home to the stops as well as reducing the total number of stops or cutting transportation for some students entirely. The district chose to continue providing bus transportation to as many students as possible. Current bus stop locations will remain in place for the rest of the school year.
