Alfred-Almond Central School goes remote due to bus driver shortage


Early this morning AACS officials were forced to call student families with some challenging news: The school would have to shift to remote learning after the majority of bus drivers were not on the job. Superintendent Tracie Bliven sent this message to families, faculty, and staff this morning:

Good Morning,

 I apologize for the very late notice, however; we just had 7 of our 9 bus drivers call in and we are unable to run our regular routes.  Therefore, we are having to make the decision to transition to a virtual school day.  We know this is going to cause a last-minute disruption to family arrangements, and for that, we are extremely sorry.  Thank you for your understanding.

Tracie Bliven

Superintendent of Schools

A call to the administration did not yield any detail about behind the decision. School officials would not comment on the situation. Unconfirmed reports indicate that the decision to go remote was not Covid-19 related.
