Notice to Parents: Revision of School Transportation Safety Protocols

posted Dec 27, 2016, 10:16 AM by Doreen Salera

N O T I C E

 

Please review carefully the following announcement from the Superintendent of Schools, the KRSB Transportation Committee, and the Management of STA Student Transportation

After a recent analysis of district bus accident protocols, the Transportation Committee has determined that the following revisions will enhance safety and communication during and after an accident involving school buses in the district.  Those changes will take effect after January 3rd, 2017.

1.    In the event of an accident involving one of the KRSD buses, and after Police and EMT Personnel have cleared the scene, all students in grades K-12 will be brought to Kearsarge Regional Middle School which will serve as the district accident staging location.

2.    Preschool students will be brought to James House Preschool located at SAU 65 campus in New London.

3.    Once safely at Kearsarge Middle School, parents who wish to sign out their students may do so with the assistance of KRMS attendance personnel.  All other students will be transported from there to their respective schools (at the beginning of the day), or home (at the end of the day).

4.    STA Student Transportation staff will continue to provide parents of affected students with timely and pertinent information about the nature of the accident.  STA will also make available alternative transportation for all students along the specific bus route.

5.    We recommend that parents do not attempt to meet their child(ren) at the scene of an accident.  Doing so creates potential concerns for emergency personnel assisting the situation and impacts the safety of all parties, including the children.

6.    In case of a reported accident, we ask that parents contact only STA Transportation (603-938-6464), Kearsarge Regional Middle School (603-927-2100), or the SAU 65 Office (603-526-2051) with questions or concerns. 

 

We are confident that the above changes will support the important work of local emergency services as well as streamline communication between parents, the district, and all agencies involved in the rare cases of school bus accidents.

Message from the Superintendent

posted Dec 5, 2016, 9:44 AM by Doreen Salera

Dear Kearsarge Community,

This morning, winter has arrived with the first measurable snow fall in the Kearsarge district and the rest of the State.  As a result and not unexpectedly, we experienced slippery roads and travel delays just when school was about to start.  I am glad to report that all of our buses safely delivered their passengers to the seven district schools, even though a few of them ran late.  “Safety First” is the mission on days like that.

Each year we try to remind students, parents, and staff to use extra caution during the winter season to make sure everybody arrives safely where they need to be when school is in session.  This includes a plea to execute good judgement when it comes to driving in local road conditions as well as to encourage student drivers to take the bus instead of venturing out on their own.

Certainly, each time winter weather is predicted, I will attempt to make the best decision when it comes to declaring a “Blizzard Bag Day”, cancellation, or delayed opening.  The process continues to be the same as in past years:  it involves checking available weather reports and forecast services as early as 4:00 a.m., consulting with representatives from the bus company who in turn have contacted local road agents for their assessments of the roads, speaking with other superintendents in the area, as well as considering snowfall or ice amounts predicted through the course of the day.  Given the geographical features of our district and the length and complexity of our bus routes, those decisions must be made well before the first students are picked up at their bus stops.  Reversing decisions due to sudden changes in weather conditions is often not possible without sufficient lead time.

Under most circumstances, weather cancellations or delays will probably hit the correct mark.  Sometimes, though, even with the best forecasting and due diligence, New England weather can be challenging.  Please be assured that school closing decisions are never made lightly and always have in mind the best interest of students, parents, staff, and the wider community.

Respectfully,

Winfried Feneberg

Superintendent of Schools, Kearsarge Regional School District
