Transportation Crisis

Good morning ESD 159 families,
 On behalf of the School District, I want to thank you so much for your patience and understanding during our student transportation crisis. As you all know, the shortage of bus drivers is a national crisis effecting students and their families throughout the country.  Our bus company, American Bus Company has a shortfall of 300 employees. However, they are diligently working to hire more bus drivers.  We truly understand your frustration and will work our best under this unfortunate situation that is outside of our control. 
Should you have any questions related to your student transportation, please contact Dr. William Johnson at (708) 720-1300 or
Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
Shelia M. Friday, 
ESD 159 Public Relations & Grant Administrator
