Emergency & Inclement Weather Notice

El Dorado Union High School District Transportation staff are out evaluating roads as early as 2:00 a.m. on days of poor weather so that a decision can be made by 4:00 a.m. if we will be changing any of the school bell times for the morning. Unfortunately, when it doesn’t start snowing until 5:00 a.m., it is too late to change the bell times.

Our school bus drivers strive to maintain their route times, but on bad weather days, safety of our students is our first priority. Please be aware that a school bus may be delayed up to a half hour if the driver has to chain the school bus. Also add in traffic congestion that also causes unexpected delays during the routes.
NOTE: The communities of Camino, Pollock Pines, Grizzly Flats, and Mt. Aukum are most prone to being affected by inclement weather.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,
Dennis Vanderpool
Director of Transportation

Please call 622-6306, for more information on a particular route.
