On days that Juneau receives significant snowfall the school district will be joining the city and issuing snow routes in conjunction with the city buses. Please follow the snow schedule on days that we announce the use of snow routes. When in doubt about whether or not the bus can make it down your road or to your stop, if you proceed to the snow stops your students will be picked up. These stops only apply to the Regular Bus Routes, but Special Education Routes may be impacted on a day-to-day basis. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Kevin Hansen at First Student 789-7352. Click here to see Snow Bus Routes.
