Inclement Weather info

If Lawrence schools close for snow and ice, we close our offices and do not provide transportation on those days to keep everyone safe. And if Lawrence classes start late or end early, we do the same. Please call our office, check out our Facebook Page or check back here if you are unsure of a weather closing.

    Holiday and Other Office Closings

Our offices and Transportation Services will be CLOSED Monday, February 17th, 2020 for President's Day
