ESM: School Cancellation/Delays/Early Dismissals

 

Students will not receive transportation in the event of a school closure or when the student’s home district has cancelled school. For bus transportation changes due to delays, it is important for you to monitor

ALL the towns served by your child’s bus (see chart below). Your child’s bus will follow the schedule for the town with the longest delay. For example, if a student rides bus 40, you will need to monitor Rocky Hill and Wethersfield school district schedules and follow the longest delay. However, if one town is cancelled, but the other one is not, transportation will still run on schedule for the towns still in session. Should any town run an early release schedule during a normal school day, we will call each family to notify them and review dismissal procedures. All towns serviced by that bus will be also dismissed early. If Hartford Schools are open and your bus service has been interrupted, you may always elect to transport your child to/from school. Students who are late or absent due to bus transportation, will be marked "excused." Please see the reference chart below for a summary. Bus Number
