PEORIA, AZ — The Peoria Unified School District is canceling ten bus routes Thursday and Friday due to a shortage of drivers, officials say.

The schools that have bus routes that are impacted are:

-Sun Valley
-Sky View
-Zuni Hills
-Desert Harbor
-Paseo Verde
-Country Meadows
-Coyote Hills
-Vistancia Elementary School
-Marshall Ranch Elementary School
-Ironwood High School
-Liberty High School
-Centennial High School
-Peoria High School
-Sunrise Mountain High School

Officials say the schools are working with the families to facilitate other means of transportation such as adjusting the drop-off or pick-up schedule in case families need to bring their children in early or having them stay later for pickup.

The district says schools may also offer the possibility of allowing a student to work virtually if they absolutely cannot get to school through any other means.
