BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students at eight public schools in Botetourt County will need to find alternate transportation to and from school on Friday because four different school buses will not be running for the day.
According to Botetourt County Public Schools, buses 18, 65, 82, and 96 are all canceled for Friday, Oct. 8.
The district says these bus cancellations will impact students at Buchanan Elementary School, Breckinridge Elementary School, Troutville Elementary School, Greenfield Elementary School, Central Academy Middle School, Read Mountain Middle School, James River High School, and Lord Botetourt High School.
If families cannot find other means of transportation for students on Friday, school officials say those students will not be marked as absent. However, you are asked to reach out to the teacher(s) about any missed work or assignments.
