KAHULUI - The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) advises students and parents at Maui High and Maui Waena Intermediate schools that school bus routes will be temporarily consolidated due to a current shortage of drivers. All riders at these schools will continue to be picked up, but scheduled pick-up and arrival times will be modified from previous years. Updated schedules are available here:
"Due to a lack of available school bus drivers on Maui, bus routes at these schools will be consolidated to adjust to fewer personnel," said Assistant Superintendent Dann Carlson. "As a result, route times will be modified to accommodate the longer distances and students will see some delays and slightly longer travel times. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience and routes will be restored as new bus drivers are hired."
During this time, school administrators will make adjustments to ensure that all students affected by the transportation delays have adequate time for school breakfast and are not penalized for tardiness.
For school bus route questions or concerns, please call the Get On Board Hotline at 808-586-0161 on Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
