Due to county wide road restrictions going into effect on Monday, school buses will be going on emergency routes also beginning Monday. Emergency routes mean buses will not be traveling down certain roads due to weight restrictions. Instead, those students will be picked up at designated locations which vary depending on the District and area served.
