Restricted Bus Service Areas

MSAD No. 75

 

Monday, November 6, 2017

 

Due to numerous conditions, including downed lines, bus service will not be provided to the following areas:

 

Bowdoin: All normal bus service will be in effect. No restricted areas.

 

Bowdoinham: All normal bus service will be in effect.  No restricted areas.

 

Harpswell:

·         Basin Point Road: The bus will go to 260 Basin Point Rd. and turn around. Anyone beyond 260 to the Dolphin Marina will need to find an alternative bus stop. There is an alternative bus stop at the Curtis farm preserve for tomorrow and remaining days until the tree has been removed from across the road.

·         Allen Point Road, as of tonight, still has a cable wire hanging down in the area of Morse Shore Road. If that is not removed by morning, the bus will split the road in half and come up both directions, and service the entire road tomorrow.  The bus will turn around at Morse Shore Road go back to Harpswell Neck Road and then come in the other end of Allen Point Road. The bus will then turn around at the first corner.

 

Topsham:

·          Pleasant Point Road will not be traveled by the school bus. Too many lines and trees down.  Parents will need to escort, if safe, their children to meet the bus at Foreside Road and Pleasant Point Road in the morning.

 

For any families where bus service is not provided, please use your own judgment about whether it is safe or not to transport your children to the next closest main road. We know there are still some areas with downed wires, so attention to your individual area will be necessary. We will give an excused absence to any student missing school because of this.

 

If you know someone living in one of these restricted areas who may not have power, please help us get the word to them.

 

Thank you,

 

Brad Smith

Superintendent
