Adair County school buses in Knifley area on regular schedule

Earlier report - Elkhorn Rd. at Knifley VFD blocked by overturned gas tanker

By Ed Waggener & Larry Smith
Joint & FM 99.9, the Big Dawg Report

David Jones, Director of Student Transportation for the Adair County School District, reached by phone, said that all students in the area of the gas tanker cleanup across from the Knifley Fire Department will be picked up on as near to a regular schedule as is safely possible this morning.

Jones said that he has been in contact with Adair County School District IT Director Jason Rector, who was the first person on the scene, to coordinate changes in the routes.

Jones said that only one student, who lives closest to the scene, might be affected. "The student may have to walk a short distance," he said. "Otherwise, we simply ask that parents be patient if the buses run a few minutes late because of the detour."

Only two bus routes, for Bus No. 18 and No. 20, are affected, Jones said.

Mr. Jones suggests travelers use Robinson Ridge Road and Union Church Road as detours.
