Dear Sci High Families:

(Please read entire message.)
As promised, we have attempted to keep you posted as new developments arise regarding transportation.  We appreciate your continued patience as we make this transition to a long term solution.
As mentioned previously, there continues to be a citywide shortage of available buses that meet the criteria dictated by new city regulations, as well as a shortage of drivers with proper driving credentials. However, today we received confirmation from EMS Transportation that they are able to begin phasing in buses, with morning and afternoon service, as soon as Monday. Sept 16th. This means that morning and afternoon services will be provided to two (2) routes initially, and as additional buses and drivers become available, they will be phased in, with the hopes that all contracted buses will be online by October 1, 2019.   
Starting Monday, Sept 16, 2019, the Orange and Pink bus routes will begin receiving morning and afternoon service.  Please note that there may have been changes to the routes by the new bus company, so PLEASE CHECK THE SCHOOL WEBSITE ( for possible changes to times and bus stops.  At this time, all other routes will remain on the temporary service for morning pickup only.  We anticipate phasing in the Westbank buses next, but we do not have an exact date as of yet.  
NOTE:  Unfortunately, we regret that we will be unable to provide bus service to all of our previous routes in the long term.  As of October 1, 2019, those students who reside closest to the school (less than 2.5 miles) will be offered 30-day RTA bus passes, only.  The temporary, morning only service, will continue to be provided until Sept. 27, 2019 to students within this area.  We want to make sure these families have enough time to adapt to this new arrangement.  
Thank you again for your patience and cooperation during this time of transition.  Please continue to monitor your email or check the website for any further updates, should they occur.  If you have questions, please contact the school by email or by phone at 504-324-7061.  (Please note that there is extremely high call volume between 7:00 - 9:00 a.m., during which time you may be directed to the voicemail system.)
Most sincerely,
-Dr.  M. Cola
