Steve Hale of the Owatonna Bus Company was a guest on AM 1390's Talk of the Town. This fall marks a number of changes in schools, school names, boundaries and school bus routes. The only school that doesn't have a change in boundaries this upcoming school year will be Lincoln School. Other school changes include McKinley School, now located where Willow Creek School used to be, and Washington School, now located where McKinley used to be. With that the boundaries for those schools have changed.

Parents and guardians should have received a letter in the past few days explaining the pickup times for their child. There will also be changes after school with elementary schools letting out 5 minutes earlier this upcoming school year. They will now get out at 2:25PM. The High School and Middle School will get out at 2:40PM. Last year the High School and Jr High let out at 3PM. Those who have not received a letter from Owatonna Bus Company, or if you have misplaced it, contact the Bus Company with any questions.
