I was notified minutes ago that 1,750 railcars will be moved from Monte Vista, then to Alamosa and on to Antonito from May 12th, starting at 5:30a.m., to May 18th at 8:00 p.m., on a rolling 24/7 schedule. Railcars will be moved in shifts of approximately 300 at a time which is a distance of about 3 miles in length. this may affect our bus routes, causing delays being estimated up to 30 minutes. It is an impossibility to predict when and where a group of the cars will be at any given time, or what road(s) will be blocked. Therefore, I want to apprise you that any given bus may be delayed in terms of arrival, departure, and transfers. The district will do everything possible to ensure your student arrives to school ontime, but given this scenario, I am notifying you there may be long delays. Delays may also be possible on our evening activity bus. You personally may be affected on your commute to and from work, and this may affect emergency services and law enforcement.
As more information is available, I will update this message and attempt to keep you informed.
