Guemes Island School Bus Service Cut Meeting

 Dear Guemes Island families and students:

As you likely know, we are shifting our school start times beginning in 2019-20 to allow for a later start time for students in middle and high school. Middle school will dismiss at 2:40 p.m.; Cap Sante High School will dismiss at 2:35 p.m., and Anacortes High School will dismiss at 2:45 p.m. Because of the ferry schedule, the district will have just one island run in the afternoon.

As a result, middle and high school students will have the following options for after-school transportation:

? Middle and high school students can catch the bus at their school when school gets out, and the bus will drop them at the ferry crossing at 3:15 (no transportation within the island to students stops); OR
? All students can meet the bus at Island View elementary at 3:30 p.m., and they will be transported to their regular bus stop via the 4:00 p.m. ferry.

We know that schedule changes and transportation issues impact families greatly, and we want to offer you an opportunity to meet with us to ask questions.

We will be available on Monday, June 17 at 5:30 at the Guemes Island Community CHURCH. Please RSVP to my office if you would like to attend: (360) 503-1211 or

We appreciate your patience as we work through these impacts. If you have any questions, please contact us at (360) 503-1211.
