The Davenport Community School District contacted parents early Monday morning to announce the closure of the school district for January 3rd, citing a shortage of bus drivers.

Classes would have resumed today after a two-week Christmas Break, regardless of the cold weather or slippery conditions.

All after-school activities will continue as planned.

Parents of All-Saints are reporting the same message, as the school uses the same bus system.

We've reached out to the district to find out if this shortage is a staffing shortage due to not enough staff in general, or if it's a matter of staff being sick and/or in quarantine.

Understaffing is a problem that has been seen across every industry, from fast food to grocery stores, to healthcare, to now affecting the education of students.
