The Anglophone South School District said some families would not be getting school bus service this year because of physical distancing requirements due to COVID-19.

Another week of Sudbury school bus cancellations due to a shortage of drivers, the fifth in a row, is affecting 11 routes the week of Oct. 5.

Sudbury Student Services Consortium has announced that route cancellations continue with three less than last week.

It said COVID-19 has greatly impacted one of its operators, Leuschen Transportation, after many drivers decided not to return to the job this school year.
