Inclement weather and bus riders

Parents of children who ride school buses are reminded that winter weather in North Dakota can create dangerous situations for those students that are unprepared.

The Rugby Public Schools would like to remind parents that students riding buses should be properly clothed for extreme winter conditions, wearing winter coats, hats, gloves, and proper footwear. Parents should check with students of all ages before they leave home to board a rural route or activity bus to be sure that they are prepared for the extreme weather potential that exists every day during this time of year.
