Snow Routes for Stevenson-Carson School District 2016-17

At Stevenson-Carson School District, our top priority is student safety. With winter weather nearly upon us, it's time to think about snow bus routes and road conditions. In the event that weather conditions make bus transportation hazardous, Stevenson-Carson School District may decide to use limited bus routes as an option to total school closure. The Stevenson-Carson School District will work closely with the Skamania County Road Division to makes sure that roads that we travel will be safe for the buses and students. The Maintenance Level 1 roads are our main SNOW ROUTES with a couple of roads Maintenance Level 2. In the event of a major weather event, we may need to reduce our routes even further to SEVERE SNOW ROUTES that will travel only on Maintenance Level 1 roads or less.

During the winter we will be closely monitoring the weather conditions. The Transportation Supervisor will be on the road in the early hours to assess driving and walking conditions. Information will be compiled and reported to the Superintendent, who will make the decision based on the best available information at the time. Everyone who lives in the Gorge knows that weather conditions vary from area to area and can be unpredictable and change without warning. We understand that the changes in bus routes can disrupt family schedules and we appreciate your patience during these weather situations. While we know our students and families are best served when we are open, our top concern is the safety of our students and staff.

If a decision is made to change the school schedule, every effort will be made to communicate that change to families. A decision will generally be made by 5:00 a.m. and notifications will begin at that time. Flash Alert will be activated, which will notify all the news media in the Portland-Vancouver area as well as in the Gorge. If you would like to receive emails regarding school closures via Flash Alert.net. Our automated telephone system, School Messenger, will call all families beginning at 6:00 a.m. with the phone numbers on record with the schools. Please make sure that home and emergency contact phone numbers are up to date and on file with the schools. In order to avoid overloading our phone systems, please do not contact schools or bus garage regarding weather conditions and closures.

The following roads/stops will not have bus service during SNOW ROUTES. Please note the alternate pickup / drop-off points. Please add 2 hours for AM routes, if 2-hour late start.
