(WBIR) Blount County Schools announced Tuesday that the county's 73 buses won't run Friday because of budget cuts for the 2013-14 academic year.
Schools will be officially open and teachers will take attendance. If a parent can't take their child to school, they're asked to contact the principal or their child needs to bring a note to the principal.
The school system selected these four days to cut because they precede county-wide holidays.
Dates buses won't run:
- Friday, Oct. 4
- Wednesday, Dec. 18
- Friday, March 14
- Tuesday, May 20
