Superintendent's Message to Parents Regarding Late Busses on February 20, 2018

Dear Weld RE-5J Families:
 
I am writing to apologize to the families of our students who had longer than usual wait times at the bus stop this morning. Given the cold temperatures, the fact that any student had to be outside for a prolonged period is simply unacceptable and we are working today to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
 
While there is no excuse for the bus delays this morning, I would like to explain what happened. As a district, we followed our usual inclement weather procedures to determine whether to close school. We determined that the roads, conditions, and the fact that our buses started when they left the bus facility this morning were conducive to having school go on as usual. However, once in route, fuel lines in multiple buses gelled and they were not able to complete their routes. This resulted in long wait times at bus stops for some students.
 
We have been in contact with our fuel supplier to ensure that the appropriate additives are added to our diesel fuel so that we don’t have gelled fuel lines and buses run on time and as scheduled tomorrow. Again, we regret that even one child was outside longer than necessary this morning and apologize for the frustration this caused. We are confident that we will have this issue resolved for tomorrow’s bus
routes.
 
Sincerely,
Marty Foster
Superintendent of Schools
