Transporting your children to and from school in a safe manner is of utmost importance to all of us. When it is appropriate, our buses will be equipped with tire chains, but even when the buses are chained up there are some hills and unplowed turnarounds that we want to avoid. Because of this we are establishing snow routes as described below.

When snow routes are in force we encourage you to have your children walk to the nearest pickup point on the operating part of their bus route. If you feel that it is unsafe for you children to walk to the pick up point during the brief time that snow routes are in effect, they will be allowed an opportunity to complete any school work assigned during their absence.

Notice of school closures, in the implementation of snow routes, or any other changes in school bus transportation, will be broadcast by radio stations MIXX 96, KELA or KITI and KING TV before 7:00 am. Information will also be posted on, just link to the Seattle region, the Lewis County Schools. In addition, you should receive an e-mail and/or phone message from our school messenger system. Emergency school closures during the school day, if any, will be broadcast approximately one hour before an emergency school closure, if at all possible. You are asked to make arrangements for your child’s care in the event of early closure.

When snow routes are in effect, buses will not travel on the following roads:

Bus 1 
Coulson Road, north of Koontz Road (students pick-up/drop off at corner of Coulson Road and Koontz Road at Ernie Cook Logging yard)
Forrest-Napavine Road (No district transportation)

Bus 2 
Pleasant Valley Road North of Tennessee Road (student pick-up/drop off at Pleasant Valley Road and Tennessee Road)

Bus 6 
Sommerville Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Sommerville Road and Hwy 603)
Harmon Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Sommerville Road and Hwy 603) 
Rush Road (no district transportation)

Bus 7 
Woodard Road (student pick/up drop off at corner of Woodard Road and Washington Street)
Jackson Hwy south of South Prarie Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Jackson Hwy and South Prarie Road)

Bus 8 
Fircrest Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of John road and Do-Over Lane, under power lines).
John Road north of Do-Over Lane (student pick-up/drop off at corner of John Road and Do-Over Lane-under power lines)

Bus 10
Conrad Road (student pick up/drop off at corner of Conrad road and Hwy 603)
Monroe Road (Student pick-up/drop off at Camden Way and Haywire Road)
Hawkins Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Hale Road and Hwy 603)
Pleasant Valley Road – North of Tennessee Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Pleasant Valley Road and Tennessee Road)
Holcomb Road (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Sommerville Road and Hwy 603)
Haywire Road south of Camden Way (student pick-up/drop off at corner of Camden Way and Haywire Road)

Drivers will attempt to adjust bus pick up times at key points to stay as close as possible to their regular time schedules.

At other times during the year it may be necessary to start school one or two hours late or to dismiss school early due to weather or emergencies. When this happens the school will make every attempt to notify the radio stations by 7:00 am in the case of late starting times and at least one hour previous to dismissal during the day.

Questions about times should be directed to the Transportation Supervisor at 262-3630.

Dr. Rick Jones

Thanks to those of you in our school community who took part in our online learning process this spring aimed at building an Education Plan for our District. The Plan, being developed by our school board, will include district goals to guide our work over the next three years, and detailed action steps to achieve the goals will also be included in the Plan. We’ve reviewed your thoughts and priorities and now we want to share the results with you.

From the 87 people who contributed, we learned about our strengths and the areas that we can improve. To learn what was most important to people in our schools and District, visit the ThoughtExchange results here.
