Original Story (Posted on Aug. 16)
The first day of school for students is .
And as students and their families gear up for opening day, the new East Haven Schools bus routes have been released for the 2012-13 school year.
The routes are attached to this article as a PDF document. And there are many changes.
This is due to the reduction of two buses in the district's overall fleet for the new school year.
The cut, part of the school board meeting the Town Council's for the new fiscal year, reduced the Board of Education's budget by $99,999.
Because of the large number of changes, Durham School Services — which operates and manages the district's bus service — is asking students and their families to make sure they are at their scheduled stops early this year.
"Due to the significant number of new bus routes this year, we request that all students be at their bus stops a minimum of 45 minutes prior to the start time of your school," the company posted on the school district's website.
For more information, or if you have questions regarding the bus routes, contact East Haven's local Durham School Services office at 203-469-3904.
