Letter: Be aware of school-bus changes

Dear parents and community members,

As summer comes to a close and everyone starts gearing up for the start of the new school year, I’d like to inform you of the significant changes that have occurred over the summer to our school-bus routes. Over the summer, we diligently worked on consolidating our routes to improve safety and to clean up the convoluted directions of our routes. What this means for you and your children is that most of our routes’ stops and pickup and drop-off times have changed! We have the updated routes and pickup times posted on our district webpage in the transportation section; please take the time and go over each route, as you will find that most routes are different and your child will be riding a different bus or have a different pickup and drop-off location. If you have any questions, please contact Gary Vavra, director of transportation and facilities, at 970-429-6081 or contact him via email at gvavra@aspenk12.net​. You also may reach out to me at ​rmahaffey@aspenk12.net​ with any concerns or questions. Our goal and priority is to help your children reach school, home and after-school activities safely, promptly and enjoyably. We look forward to hearing from you and anticipate the new school year and seeing all our students once again.

Hope you enjoy the last few days of your summer.

Reghan Mahaffey

Aspen School District
