Routes without an emergency plan

The following routes do not have an emergency plan:

  • 3056 – Oeo/Patiki

route change process

The process for making emergency changes to routes is as follows:

  1. Tracey identifies a driver shortage and decides which emergency route plan will be activated.
  2. Tracey contacts Greig to advise the activation, Greig updates this page 
  3. Greig sends an email to the Operations group announcing the change. 
  4. Greig sends a text message to affected principals.
  5. School personnel communicate with their community as previously decided.
  6. The change remains in effect until further notice – no further communications will occur until the normal route/s are reactivated.
