BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students at six public schools in Botetourt County will need to find another way to get to class on Thursday following the cancellation of two bus routes for the day.

According to Botetourt County Public Schools, buses 17 and 46 will not run on Thursday, Oct. 21.

This will impact students at Buchanan Elementary School, Colonial Elementary School, Central Academy Middle School, Read Mountain Middle School, James River High School, and Lord Botetourt High School, the district says.

However, transfer shuttles will not be affected by these cancellations.

If you cannot arrange for alternate transportation for your student(s), school officials say they will not be marked absent from school. You are asked to reach out to the teacher(s), though, about any missed assignments for Thursday.
