NLESD-ER-17-160 - Indian Pond Rd Detour - Schedule A.pdf

November Public Exam Supplementaries:

Good evening. I was just informed by Parsons Transportation that Indian Pond Drive is inaccessible for bussing until further notice. Students living in this area, will be picked up at the intersection of Indian Pond Drive and Indian Pond Road or Indian Pond Estates. As soon as the road issue is resolved, students will be picked up at their usual bus stops. Thank you and have a great evening.

Due to the ongoing construction work in the Indian Pond Rd Area (Indian Pond Rd, Indian Pond Dr and Indian Pond Estate), bus routes will be starting 5 minutes earlier than previous. Also, students will be serviced at or near their addresses, to minimize students traveling on foot through the construction area. These temporary measures will begin on the morning of Wednesday, September 13, and will remain in place until the construction is complete. When we receive notice that the construction is complete, we will send out notification to you all again to confirm the end of these temporary measures.


Queen Elizabeth Regional High - Route 17-130-1 will begin at 7:20 a.m.
