Izaak Walton’s ‘Seasons’ photo calendar contest returns

Flossmoor School District 161 will pay 20% more for bus transportation in the 2022-23 academic year, after the board approved a contract with Kickert School Bus Lines at its meeting on Monday, May 9.

In its contract renewal, the district agreed to pay $152,000 more, for a total of about $909,700. That cost includes 15 buses picking up and dropping off children over 30 routes.
