Weather Delay Schedule for Identified Schools (Including Kaiser Elementary)

In the event of adverse weather conditions that would impede the Transportation Department’s ability to safely access students, a Weather Delay Schedule for Identified Schools will be implemented beginning this school year. The goal for this delay schedule is to provide buses an additional 60 minutes to access schools that start at 8:30 a.m. or later. If a school starts before 8:30 a.m., it will not be impacted by the Weather Delay Schedule and will start at its normal time.   Because Kaiser Elementary starts at 8:55 AM, we are impacted by the Weather Delay, if such a Delay is determined by the District.

Transportation is implementing a new notification system called Bus Bulletin that communicates time-sensitive information via text message, voice message and email to  parents in the event of a service interruption (e.g., delays due to an emergency, traffic or inclement weather). Bus Bulletin is free to schools, parents and students.

Parents of transportation-eligible students will automatically be opted-in to receive notifications from Bus Bulletin. If families want to update their contact information, they are encouraged to do so in Infinite Campus, by contacting their school’s front office or by logging in to the Parent Portal.
