97-7 Country WGLR

The Lancaster School Board has decided

to cut back on the number of bus routes

its’ currently operating.

District Administrator Rob Wagner says

the district will consolidate four routes

into three, mainly because of the lack of

students on the routes. The route being

eliminated serves primarily the west side

of the school district. It was averaging

between 9-to-16 students per trip. Wagner

says consolidating the routes would add

about 7-to-12 minutes to the bus ride for

students affected. Estimated cost savings

is around $7,500. It’s hoped the change

will begin next week.

has accepted the resignation of Brett Rollins

as the Middle School Track Coach…and the

resignation/retirement of 2nd Grade Teacher

Mary Melcher-Smith. Smith has worked just

over 30-years for the Lancaster Schools.

She’ll be retiring January 1st.
