Staff Shortage Affecting May & June Bus Routes
RPS 205 families,
Rockford is affected by the local, state and nationwide worker shortage, and it’s affecting our ability to recruit bus drivers and transportation staff. At this time, we do not have enough bus drivers to support every route that our students need.
We are updating our May and June transportation plans for students who use district transportation. We will cancel eight bus routes each day, starting Monday, May 15.

Thank you for your support through this difficult time.
