BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - School officials with the Bay-Waveland School District say school buses are having trouble getting to certain areas in Hancock County due to flooded roads.

An update at 1:20 p.m. Tuesday said several streets in the shoreline area are still seeing a lot of water. With high tide, it will cause issues for school buses trying to drop kids off after school.

Buses 24, 25, 27, and 58 will adjust their routes. The Lagan Street drop-off will be at the corner of Lagan and Gulf since the bus cannot make it past that roadway. The Central Avenue drop-off will be at the intersection of Central and Highway 603 at the old Todd’s gas station. The Chapman Street- drop-off will be at the intersection of Chapman and Washington because the bus cannot make it past Washington.

If your child rides one of those bus routes, parents are asked to meet the students at those intersections in order to pick them up. All other bus stops are scheduled for regular drop-off.

If you have questions, contact First Student at 228-466-9002. For more updates, make sure to check the school’s Facebook page.
