NEWAYGO, Mich. — Newaygo Public Schools is not providing school bus rides to and from school for the rest of the week. 

Superintendent Jeff Wright said the district was unable to cover their current routes for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 

"We did look at the possibility of combining and canceling some routes, but it still left us with too many kids without routes," Wright said.

"We love our drivers, and we're doing the best we can to get kids to school in a safe manner."

Wright said the transportation department has enough drivers regularly, but due to a variety of reasons, the school is missing some drivers.
