Metro Parents, We just received word from the Columbus City Schools Transportation office that bus routes 148 & 217 will not arrive on time this afternoon. The district is trying to arrange another bus to transport those students but it is not guaranteed. If late pick up can be arranged, it will not be until after 4pm (when drivers have finished other routes). We should hear back from the district at that time to see if we have any students still waiting for late pick up. If your child is on one of those two routes, you are encouraged to arrange another ride home this afternoon. We apologize for the inconvenience this presents to those of you who are at work or who have limited transportation options. Please know we are continuing to work with the district to ensure students have reliable transportation moving forward. We have received word that a group of over 100 new bus drivers is in training to take care of the driver shortage, which should resolve many of the issues we have been experiencing this fall. Thanks for your understanding.
Sign-up for the PTSA's biggest fundraiser of the year by helping with parking on our lot during an OSU home game this fall. The PTSA raises $1,500-$2,500 at each football game! Funds are used to benefit student and teacher hosted events during the year. If your child participates in a club that may need funding, bring them along to volunteer with you! You can also help by inviting friends to park with us when attending a game. Parents and students are needed to make this fundraiser successful.
