Guilford County Schools has suspended bus service for some high schools in Greensboro and High Point.
The suspension of bus service began Monday for eight Guilford high schools. They are Andrews, High Point Central and Kearns Academy in High Point, and Dudley, Grimsley, Page, Smith and The Academy at Smith in Greensboro.
School officials say there aren't enough drivers to staff those routes, a situation compounded by rising COVID-19 cases in the county.
The Greensboro Transit Agency and High Point Transit System are both offering free rides to Guilford high school students within their city limits if they show their student identification cards.
High school students whose schools are located outside of city boundaries will still have school bus service. The interruption also does not apply to elementary or middle schoolers, high school students with disabilities or magnet school students.
School officials say the bus service suspension is temporary but have not said when it will end.
