Storm damage forces cancellation of four bus routes on Tuesday morning

Polk County Schools will not run several bus routes on Tuesday due to damage done by Sunday’s storm that swept through the Tryon area.

Buses 107, 127, 113 and 8018 will not run Tuesday as remaining downed trees, downed power lines and low-hanging power lines in the Tryon area are creating unsafe conditions for bus travel, especially in the morning hours.

All Polk County Schools will operate on a regular schedule, but those four buses will not run Tuesday morning. Polk County Schools will not hold affected students responsible for absences due to the cancellation of these bus routes.

All four routes will be run Tuesday afternoon.

Parents are asked to contact their local school Tuesday with questions or to report a student who will not be in attendance.
