Weare After school late buses available

Beginning Tuesday, John Stark Regional High School will begin running two late buses beyond the regular end of day buses twice a week. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, buses will leave JSRHS at 4:30 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. and will make stops at the following established bus stops: Henniker Community School, Weare Middle School, Country 3 Corners (Weare) and Lanctot’s (Weare). This late bus schedule a pilot program and will run through December when it will be re-evaluated. “We’re hoping that the addition of these new bus runs will help more of our students participate in more meaningful after school activities and utilize the resources (everything from teachers, to the library, to computers) in our school,” said Principal Christopher Corkery. “This is something parents and students have asked us for and we’re making it happen.”
