The Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools had 17 school bus drivers call out on Wednesday, a decline from the initial sick-out on Friday where 54 drivers called out and left many students and families scrambling for rides to school. On Tuesday, 45 drivers called out sick.
All those routes were covered Wednesday, according to a district spokesperson, adding that the district has identified several staff members who have valid CDLs and are available to cover some routes.
