Fog Delays

During the fog season, all school sites may have delayed starts which means that the buses will run 2 hours later than the Regular Schedule. The decision to call a Fog Delay is made by 6:00 a.m. and is based on a visibility standard of 300 feet over the majority of the district. Before the buses are allowed to leave at 6:30 a.m., I will have traveled throughout the district ensuring the 300-foot standard is in effect. For Fog Delay and Fog Closure information, please visit the District Web Site www.ruesd.net. Click on Fog Delays. You will have access to the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Web Site http://alertline.kern.org. Also, the delays are announced on most local radio and television stations by 7:00 a.m.
