Harford County offers alternate school bus stops in wake of storm damage, road closures

Harford County Public Schools on Monday night released information for alternate bus stops that the district has established after recent storms damaged and closed many roads and bridges.

The alternate stops and estimated pickup and drop-off times can be found on the school system’s website.

“As a result of recent storms, there are numerous roads and bridges throughout the county that remain out of service,” the district stated on its website. “At this time, due to the extensive damage in some areas, we will need the assistance of parents and guardians to ensure students can arrive safely to and depart safely from school.”
