School days will be altered in Ottawa under change in bus schedule

Posted by wlpo on March 18, 2015

Several elementary students may have to start waking up earlier in Ottawa.

The Ottawa Elementary School Board has put together a plan just in case they stop sharing buses with Ottawa High School. The high school is looking at ways to cut transportation costs. If the split happens, the elementary district will go from having 22 bus routes to 12.

School days for Jefferson, Lincoln and McKinley Elementary would start 20 minutes earlier than now but would then end 20 minutes sooner. Central School would start and end 20 minutes later than now while Shepherd Middle School will have the biggest change with starting 10 minutes earlier but getting out a full half hour earlier than they are now.
