McKenzie School District: School canceled over bus driver substitute shortage

FINN ROCK, Ore. - All schools in the McKenzie School District will be closed on Tuesday, May 10th due to a bus driver substitute shortage.

The alert was sent out at 9:15 p.m. that said school will be closed but staff are still being asked to report. Preschool is canceled as well.

A similar situation happened in March of 2022 when there were not enough bus drivers available.

The district has previously sent out a call for more drivers, and even offered a signing bonus.

The positions pay between $16 dollars and $21 dollars and hour with a $1200 signing bonus.

The Superintendent said hiring drivers had been an issue for a while, but it's gotten worse in recent years.
