Warrick County School Corporation Food and Nutrition Department is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be provided to all children ages 18 and younger without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Adults are welcomed to eat at the sites as well, but will be charged $1.50 for breakfast and $2.00 for lunch. Meals will be provided at a first come, first serve basis.

Memorial fund set up by the Martin Family in honor of former Warrick County School Corporation Superintendent Jim Martin. Contributions will be used to assist Warrick County students that are at-risk and students with financial needs. Funds may be used to purchase school supplies, school clothes, food, pay for academic testing and any other needs deemed appropriate.
I would like to let everyone know of our severe shortage of school bus drivers. We have been able to cover all of our routes up to this point; however we have had to double up some of our runs.
We are searching for interested parties in becoming school bus drivers. We will provide the needed training required to become a driver at no charge to you other than the cost of the license itself, which is $30.00.
Starting pay for a sub bus driver is $63.80/day and after 14 consecutive days jumps to standard pay of $72.28/day. This is for a typical morning and afternoon run consisting of 3-4 hours per day.
This is a great opportunity to learn a skill that can create you a supplemental income and still be off when the kids are not in school. We will be scheduling classes soon. All classes will start at 9:00 am at the Transportation Garage located at 3455 S. Yankeetown Rd. It typically takes 4 weeks of training before you test in Vincennes. You will test on the same vehicle you train in, making it less confusing for you. There will be some additional training needed after passing the skills test, however that can be worked in around your required driving and observing hours behind the wheel. Any questions feel free to give us a call. Our number is 812-897-0495 and you may apply online for the sub-bus driver position.
Thanks for your consideration,
R. Guy Gentry
Manager of Transportation
