Dear Parent/Carer

 

We are writing to provide some further information for those who will be affected by school buses during the UCI Cycle Race week, Monday 21 to Friday 29 September. Unfortunately, despite careful thought and planning, we will not see the full impact of the road closures and re-routing until the week starts. We do appreciate that those getting home on school buses will be more affected than others.

 

NYCC, together with race organisers and the highways department, have re-routed most bus services after-school. Despite our best efforts to confirm, bus providers are still in the process of finalising these routes using their knowledge of the roads and the capabilities of their services. Further to this letter if you have any further enquiries regarding specific pick-up, drop-off points and approximate timings, we ask that you contact the bus providers directly as they will have the most accurate information on their routes.

 

Abbotts Coaches: 01677 424858         J K Murgatroyd: 01943 880249

York Pullman: 01904 622992                 Transdev (Harrogate and District):

School Buses 01423 705063

Public Buses 01423 56606

 

Although we have received confirmation that all services will operate, we want to ensure that we support families, during this period of significant road closures, by giving students the option to remain supervised in school until 4:15pm all week (and 5pm on Wednesday). Students should report to the Learning Resources Centre at the end of the day. No extra-curricular activities or other clubs will be running after school during the week due to the transport issues.

 

The following services have been identified as those that may experience greater disruption and delays:

Should the traffic situation cause significant delays beyond the planning in place please be reassured that we will ensure the children are safe at school until they can safely be departed by bus or parents can put in place alternative arrangements. We would ask that during this period that your child can contact you after 3:10pm so that they can confirm arrangements with you if necessary.

 

We very much appreciate your cooperation.

 

Yours sincerely
