First Student, Transportation Services Contractor for Fern Ridge School District, is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage. Some bus routes are being combined, which is causing late pickup and drop off times. First Student is actively working to recruit, hire, and train more bus drivers. Some new bus drivers are scheduled to be on board within the next couple of weeks. We would like to thank you for your understanding during this time and we hope to have all bus routes running smoothly very soon.
