BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — For the second day in a row, Botetourt County Public Schools has canceled two bus routes, affecting students at six schools in the district.

On Friday, Oct. 22, school officials say buses 17 and 46 will not be running in Botetourt County. These are the same bus routes that were canceled on Thursday, Oct. 21.

Just like on Thursday, the cancellation of bus 17 and bus 46 will require 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 to find alternate transportation for Friday, according to the district.

Once again, transfer shuttles will not be impacted by this transportation announcement.

If you cannot find another way to get your student(s) to school, officials say they will not be marked absent. However, you are asked to reach out to the teacher(s) about any missed assignments from Friday.
