Lee County Schools add Belden bus route

8Y2Q_djournal_education_school_bus_buses_stockTUPELO – The Lee County School Board agreed on Tuesday to add a second bus route for students living in Belden.

The new route will begin today, as the district already has a bus and driver available. It will split the existing route in half, transportation director Judy Hill said.

With the new route there will be 45 students on one bus and about 40 on the other, Hill said. Those students attend Mooreville schools.

Hill said the district has seen a large number of students living in a new apartment complex in Belden.
