BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — School officials in Botetourt County decided to cancel four bus routes for Friday, which will impact students at eight different schools.

Botetourt County Public Schools says buses 70, 78, 82, and 89 will not run on Friday, Nov. 12.

According to the district, this will affect students at Colonial Elementary School, Eagle Rock Elementary School, Greenfield Elementary School, Troutville Elementary School, Central Academy Middle School, Read Mountain Middle School, James River High School, and Lord Botetourt High School.

However, transfer shuttles are not impacted by these bus cancellations, officials say.

Families are asked to arrange alternate transportation for any students who usually ride those four buses.

If that is not possible, the district says those students will not be marked absent from school, but parents/guardians still need to reach out to the teachers about any work or assignments the students will miss on Friday.
