Trumann Schools change bus routes due to flood water

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Trumann schools in Arkansas are monitoring the rain Wednesday morning.

The school district changed several bus routes due to high water.

Trumann officials said morning pickup and drop off locations will be altered if water continues along roads like Glasgow Lane, Woodruff Lane and McDaniel Lane.

Flooding has caused several areas of Trumann and Highway 69 to impede bus transportation travel.

Some areas have dried but in others, flooding has worsened.

Additionally, due to the city drainage system being full from localized flooding, the school’s sewer system is not able to function properly at some schools.

Last week, the district closed multiple days because of street flooding.

WMC5 reached out to the district Tuesday, who said they are keeping an eye on the conditions.

We’ll keep you posted if the district decides to cancel classes on Wednesday.
