No to outsourcing our busses.
��������ATTENTION BERKSHIRE FAMILIES,SUPPORTERS and SCHOOL TAX PAYERS. Please get in touch with your school board members and superintendent. Did you know that our school district will be voting on May 10 to outsource our bus/van drivers? They are voting on a 5 yr contract to outsource our transportation department to First Student Inc. This means your child may no longer be transported by many of your current drivers. Open positions of the drivers can be filled by anyone from anywhere and your school district will not have a choice of drivers. I don’t know about anyone else but I have always felt comfortable knowing who is driving my child to/from school, to sporting events and so on. I/We are asking for you to do your research into First Student -Including the fact that the company was just sold as of a week ago to a Swedish firm named EQT. Please share this information with other families, friends and supporters of our wonderful Berkshire school district. In addition to this change please know and understand that with the start of the K-12 bell schedule being 8am-2:40pm when the new school opens means K-12 students will be riding the bus together in the morning and the afternoon. Please support your bus/van drivers, keep our kids safe and show our community support to our school district. ��������
