We are also suffering driver shortages and I got an email at 9pm one night saying kids on a certain bus must find a ride to/from school for the next 3 days. Didn't affect me but talk about short notice especially for working parents.This afternoon I got a call from the school district stating due to the national bus driver shortage my children need to be picked up from school. If I was unable they would sent a bus 2 hours after school dismissal to bring remaining children home and it may be a 2 hour bus ride. So my kids get done at 3 pm but if I couldn’t pick them up they would get home between 5 and 7 pm. I went and picked my kids up early at 2:30 because my youngest has a family friend as his teacher and she recommended it.
