Hello Raiders, I wanted to make sure everyone is aware that Toboggan Road from 29 to Chapel Road will be closed starting Monday. Tazewell County has informed us that the closure will be short term. We've adjusted our bus routing to accommodate the closure. That is a highly traveled route for many people coming to work and school. I wanted to provide you some advance notice so that you could alter your travel routes in advance of Monday morning. Sincerely, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
