Weather in Stanwood-Camano school district is known to change quickly and is often unpredictable.  Please listen carefully to the announcements for any modifications to the regular schedule or routes.  Also remember that the district is geographically diverse and some areas may be extremely affected by conditions and other areas less affected.  Decisions are made district-wide.

Some other points to remember:

* If your bus stop is located on a hill, please go to the top or bottom of the hill to board the bus.
* School buses are designed for safety, and will be equipped with chains as needed.  Drivers have been instructed in operation of buses on slippery roads.
* During any inclement weather, buses will run as close to “on-time” as possible, but depending on the route, expect some buses to run late.  Drivers are instructed to operate safely, not quickly.
