FORT MYERS, Fla. The Lee County School District bus fleet took to the roads Friday to assess roadways for debris, flooding and overall safety after Hurricane Irma.
Bus drivers identified areas of concern and addressed the changes to routes or bus stops, the district said. Staff will notify students who will be affected.
“It’s all about student safety, it’s a priority for us at the Lee County school district,” bus driver Loretta Muller said. “And we want to make sure that there are no obstacles in the way so that we run routes properly.”
Below are the bus stops that have been relocated temporarily:
- Quinn Street and McKenna Avenue relocated to Imperial Parkway and McKenna Avenue.
- Dean Street and Quinn Street relocated to Imperial Parkway and McKenna Avenue.
- Pinecrest Lane at stop sign relocated to East Terry Street and Pinecrest Lane.
The parents of students whose stop was relocated will receive a message via ParentLink, the district said.
Students will return to school from the storm-imposed break Monday.
