January 25, 2022 – No Bus Service to/from Forks

Jan 24, 2022 | Announcements, COVID Updates

Dear QTS Students, Parents and Staff;

Covid struck QTS transportation today.  QTS as of today is experiencing staff shortages in transportation through at least January 31, 2022.  QTS will remain open, but no bus service will occur to and from Forks, WA January 25 – January 31, 2022.  Parents are more than welcome to transport your children to and from school as QTS will be open.  QTS anticipates normal bus service to/from Forks restarting again on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.  This impacts approximately 25 students who travel to and from Forks regularly to attend at QTS.

Our School Board and I know this is a major inconvenience for our Forks parents that creates additional challenges immediately.  Forks students who are unable to attend QTS due to the lack of school transportation from Forks will be excused for the short time being of January 25-31.  Recall that our LaPush parents have been dealing with no bus service for nearly one and half years of Covid.  QTS encourages students in Grades 3-12 to check their Google Classroom according to their class schedule.  Parents with Grade K-2 students need to connect with their teachers.  The School Board and Superintendent will continue to monitor and may consider closing the school if conditions get worse.  However, today, January 24, 2022, QTS saw its highest attendance of 66%, since January 6, 2022.  QTS is beginning to see a trend of students returning and we are hopeful this trend continues.

If you have questions, please call QTS at (360) 374-2061.
