Few things really can be considered priceless for the school year, but having children take the bus to school in the Travis School District just might be worth every penny.
“We are adjusting to the closure of Peabody Road,” Bill Sarty, principal of Vanden High School, said Wednesday at the start of the school year. “The school has changed the schedule with a later start time and early leave time.”
Most notably for the parents is a push to have them bus children to school rather than use the current route, to get them to school on time.
“The company doing the work on the road, built us a loop for the bus to use,” Sarty said. “So it bypasses the problem area.”
