Students in one of Iowa’s largest school districts got an extra day of vacation today.
The Davenport Community School District canceled classes at all of its schools due to a shortage of bus drivers.
Reports say two private schools in Davenport also canceled for the same reason — not enough drivers to run the routes. Davenport public schools alone have nearly 14,000 students enrolled.
This was to have been their first day back at school after a two-week holiday break. There’s no word yet on whether buses will roll tomorrow.
