Transportation Update: Bus Service Resumes Sept. 8

Transportation Update: Bus Service Resumes Sept. 8

Interim Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Lolli notified Lakota families that the contract between Petermann and the bus drivers' union has been approved, which means bus service will resume again on Friday, Sept. 8. Read the full email below.

Dear Lakota Parents and Guardians,

This morning we learned that the contract between Petermann and the bus drivers’ union has been approved, including the safety and accountability measures requested by Petermann. This means that bus service for our students will begin again tomorrow morning, Sept. 8.

Below is the complete statement from Petermann:

Transportation Service Begins Tomorrow Morning
Thank you for your patience.  We are pleased to report that the Teamsters have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement and that our transportation team members at the Lakota School District location will be back on the job starting tomorrow morning, September 8th.  Through the assistance of a federal mediator, our company reached an agreement on the technological safety and accountability measures vital to our mission to safely transport all children.  The new deal will provide a compensation and benefits package for our drivers and monitors, positioning us well to attract and retain qualified employees.  We believe this new deal is fair to both sides, and we look forward to supporting Lakota schools in the continuing education of their students.   

Once again, we want to thank you for your continued support, patience and willingness to pitch in. 


Elizabeth Lolli, Ph.D.
Interim Superintendent
