Snoqualmie Valley students return to classrooms on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. The return to full-time, in-person learning – combined with a bus driver shortage - means the potential for more students walking to/from North Bend area schools and more parents transporting their children to/from school.
The Snoqualmie Valley School District recently announced some bus route suspensions due to an ongoing driver shortage that includes some Twin Falls Middle School routes. See SVSD announcement HERE.
Drivers are encouraged to slow down, follow posted school zone speed limits and use extra caution to protect the safety of pedestrians on their way to class.
