    Grass Lake Community Schools Transitioning
    to a Two-Tier Bus System to Start our School Year

    Due to a shortage of bus drivers Grass Lake Community Schools will transition to a two-tier bus system to begin the 2021-2022 school year on August 25, which will have our buses doing an early run for Grass Lake Middle School and Grass Lake High School students, followed by our buses completing our George Long Elementary School bus runs. Go to https://bit.ly/2Wf7k1F to see Dr. Kiser's information about the transition and our plans for the future.

    2021-2022 School Year Update from Dr. Kiser

    Go to https://bit.ly/3yVUnHY to access important information about the upcoming school year as Dr. Kiser discusses face-face instruction vs. virtual instruction, mask wearing and the use of other PPE, pupil transportation (busing), and the structure of the school day.


    Bus Drivers Needed at
    Grass Lake Community Schools
    (Two tier busing is imminent if we are short of drivers)

    Grass Lake Community Schools is in need of four (4) permanent bus drivers and three (3) substitute drivers for the start of the 2021-2022 school year to avoid a transition to a two-tier busing system that would require two separate bus runs each for the morning and afternoon runs.

    Currently the district runs a single tier system with Kindergarten through 12th graders riding at the same time on 11 routes. Transitioning to a two-tier system with eight routes due to a shortage of drivers would require an early run with 6th through 12th graders, followed by a later run with Kindergarten through 5th graders. In addition, we need to cover our daily Career Center runs.

    Pay: $19.56/hour for route driving. $13.51/hour for sports/field trips
    Hours: 12.5 hours per week (2.5 hours/day)
    Benefits: Vision Insurance. Take your school-age children with you on routes.
    Training: All training and certification costs are covered by the school district. Go to https://bit.ly/3qLt6Fl for more information regarding the certification process.
