TRUSSVILLE — Students in Trussville City Schools will be sent home two hours early on Friday, Nov. 5 so school buses can be used for the Hewitt-Trussville High School football game later that night. The Huskies will face Bob Jones High School at 7 p.m. in Madison.
School officials said the decision to shut down early came after efforts to secure charter buses failed. The TCS buses will be needed to transport football players, band members, cheerleaders, and equipment.
The newsletter stated that the YMCA, Pump It Up, and Kids First have been notified of the early dismissal and are willing to accommodate the students. There was no mention of whether additional fees will be required of the facilities. Parents who use other childcare services or facilities are urged to contact their provider directly to make arrangements, according to TCS.
The game against Bob Jones is the first round of the AHSAA state playoffs. TCS will continue to try to secure charter buses in the event that HTHS advances to the second round.
