BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Three school buses in Botetourt County have been canceled for Friday, which means students seven different schools will need another form of transportation.

On Friday, Oct. 15, Botetourt County Public Schools says buses 46, 51, and 72 will not run, but this will not affect transfer shuttles.

However, the cancellation of these three buses will impact students at Buchanan Elementary School, Cloverdale Elementary School, Greenfield Elementary School, Central Academy Middle School, Read Mountain Middle School, James River High School, and Lord Botetourt High School, according to the district.

If your student attends one of these schools and usually rides bus 46, bus 51, or bus 72, school officials say you will need to arrange for alternate transportation to school.

If that is not possible, your child will not be marked absent, but you will need to reach out to their teacher(s) to ask about any missed assignments.
