NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – The Cheatham County School District made the decision to cancel bus routes for two days this week due to staffing issues.
Some parents say this will be a big inconvenience for them, especially finding out at the end of last week.
“It’s unfortunate that they don’t have enough bus drivers to complete all the routes everyday,” said Krista Kell, a Pleasant View Elementary parent.
Kell plans to drive her second and fourth graders to Pleasant View Elementary on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week after the school district cancelled their bus route.
