Two Hour Delay - October 15
We are pleased to report that power has been restored to all ABSS schools. As a safety precaution, ABSS will operate on a 2 hour delay on Monday, October 15. The 2 hour delay will give our bus drivers extra daylight to avoid any tree debris that may be on the edge of roads from overnight work by power crews still working in the area. ABSS twelve month employees should report at regular time.
