Letter sent out August 25, 2021
Dear QTS Students, Parents, Staff, School Board, Incident Commander/Chief of Police and Tribal Council;
QTS is reaching out to you and letting you know that unfortunately QTS had to make a late change in bus routes. QTS will only be able to provide one am/pm bus run to and from Forks, as we did last school year. Students inside the boundaries of the Quileute Nation will need to walk, ride a bike or carpool to and from QTS, until further notice. QTS also will continue its procedure from last school year of not providing transportation service to/from the Hoh River Valley, simply due to bus driver shortages.
QTS like many other schools are finding employee shortages, particularly with bus drivers, is a challenge. QTS continues to work on potential solutions for student transportation, but we will need to wait until mid to late September to see if those solutions are real. QTS understands the hardship this places on our families and we are empathetic to your challenges and strive to continue to find solutions.
Meanwhile, our QTS team will soon announce the bus run and location pick up and drop off times for outside the Quileute Nation boundaries. Reminder students will need to enter the building from the side kitchen door (due to Covid) at 8:30 am, which is a new time this school year for breakfast. Classes begin at 8:55 am. Students may not enter classrooms or other parts of the building until 8:30 am due to Covid restrictions and staff needing thirty minutes to prepare their day.
