Blount County schools cut bus service Friday, 3 other dates

Posted:

MARYVILLE (WATE) - Blount County's 73 school buses will not run this Friday, Oct. 4, but all schools will remain open.

School officials say they are cutting bus service on Friday due to budget cuts. Special Education buses will run on their normal schedule.

Officials say attendance will be taken, but parents who are unable to transport their child to or from school should contact the principal of the school or write the child a note to give the principal.

Buses will not run on three other days during the school year: Wednesday, Dec. 18; Friday, March 14; and Tuesday, May 20. Schools officials say these four days precede county-wide holidays.

Buses will run on their normal schedule on all other school days.
