Our Transportation Situation: Tues., Aug. 7, 2018

WMS is having a challenge with student transportation and wanted to let families know the situation.      

For the short term, the middle school is operating with only one bus and one driver.  The second bus is in the shop and we are trying to hire a bus driver.  

So here’s The Plan - but please understand it's still evolving:  

Every morning for the next several weeks, the one bus we have will pick up students on the "wet side" as usual.  

And...every morning, middle school students living on the "dry side" -- from Kawaihae up into town -- will share a Roberts Hawaii bus with elementary students.  

This is clean and simple.  But come afternoon, it’s a bit more complicated.  

The middle school’s one bus will make two trips.  

The first Trip will leave campus about 2:20 - it’ll be very full with students living on the "wet side" of Waimea. 

This bus will return to campus and as quickly as possible at about 3:15, it will head out for a second Trip to take students home on the "dry side" - down to Kawaihae.  

There will be adult supervision for students waiting on campus for the 2nd bus.  

We apologize for this - we are doing our best to find an affordable solution and hire needed drivers.  We ask your patience.  Most important to us is your child’s safety.    

Also, if you or someone you know is job hunting and has a clean driving history, with or without a CDL license, please urge them to come to campus and fill out an application.  We also need van drivers -- these would be casual hires and no CDL is required.   As with all school staff, these positions undergo fingerprinting and an ECRIM check to ensure the safety of our children.
