Dear Families of
As you may
know, the Florenceville Bridge on Route 130 will be closing for upgrades and
repairs, beginning June 10 at 6 p.m., pending any change in the
construction schedule. The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure has
informed us the bridge will remain closed for the summer and into the fall
until September 13. In the interim, we want to make sure you and your
student are informed of any changes to busing or the school day.
Schools will open at
the same time in the morning and all students travelling by bus will continue
to be picked up for school at their regular time. However, due to the detour,
there will be a slightly longer ride to and from school each day. This means bus students will arrive at school
about a half hour later in the morning and they will be about a half hour later
getting home in the afternoon. The
schools affected are Florenceville Elementary School, Florenceville Middle
School and Carleton North High School.
Eight buses will
need to take a detour. These buses will travel the Route 2 TransCanada Highway
to the Hartland exit and then onto Route 130 back to Florenceville-Bristol.
Buses are not permitted to use the covered bridge in Florenceville due to
We anticipate there
will be minimal impact on our school day in June at CNHS as June 10th
is the first day of exam week. Exams will start at 9:15 am and end at 11:15 am
daily. Students who have their own
vehicle will need to be here by 8:45 am.
Busses will depart from Carleton North at the same time, 3:12 pm and
those travelling to Centreville will arrive approximately 40 minutes later.
We will send along
any changes to our schedule in the fall if they are necessary. We appreciate
your patience and support as we work together over the next few weeks to
complete this school year and prepare for the 2019-2020 school year in the
