Snow Routes

Late-Start

Osage County R-3 has approved the option for Late Start, beginning in the 2019-20 school year. This procedure will be used when weather warrants staying off the roads in the early morning, but would allow for buses to run later.

  • Regular Routes will be run when instituting a Late Start (morning and evening).
  • School will start at 10:00 AM, and we will release at our regular time in the afternoon.

Routes are designed to leave drop off sites and travel directly to Fatima with stops made to drop off parochial school students at their prospective parochial schools. Please note we will not travel County Roads when snow routes are called for. We will only call for snow routes when the county roads are expected to improve during the day and full routes will be run in the afternoon. Students are to board the buses as soon as they arrive at a drop off point. Parents are urged to drop your students at the following drop off points only when a bus is present. Thank you for your cooperation!
