With Lake Panorama’s road embargo likely to be put into place soon, Greg Randel, director of transportation for Panorama Community Schools, sent a letter to Panorama families stating that the district will have pick-up and drop-off spots at the lake as they have done in past years.

“Please make sure that you arrive early to the pick-up and drop off spots so your students do not miss the bus,” Randel stated. “In the afternoon, if no one is at the bus stop to pick up students, they will stay on the bus and be taken back to the bus barn after the route unless other arrangements have been made with the transportation department.”

On the east side of the lake, the pick-up and drop-off point will be at the Lake Panorama Maintenance Shed at 7:25 a.m. and 3:50 p.m. and at the intersection of Sage Trail and Panorama Drive at 7:45 a.m. and 3:35 p.m. At the maintenance shed, cars are to line up on the north side of the parking lot, making sure not to block any overhead doors. The bus will pull into the drive and make a U-turn, putting the entry door of the bus to the east.  

On the west side of the lake, bus No. 5 will pick up and drop off at the Par 3 Golf Course at 7:25 a.m. and 3:50 p.m.

Those with questions are encouraged to call Randel at 641-755-2308.
