MOORHEAD — Some athletic events for Moorhead schools may be in jeopardy in the coming days due to a shortage of bus drivers.
According to a post on Twitter by the Moorhead Spuds account ( @MHSSpuds ), the school is entering ‘uncharted territory’ due to the situation.

We are in unchartered territory...
Over the next few days we will likely cancel games due to a lack of Bus Drivers.
PLEASE encourage anyone eligible to get a Bus License!! This includes parents, grandparents,etc...
They would get paid to drive to the games!
Moorhead Athletic Director Dean Haugo was unable to comment at this time on what sporting events specifically may be affected by the shortage.
The Tweet also encouraged eligible drivers — including parents and grandparents — to get a bus license and that they would be paid to drive to games.
According to the district's activities calendar, Moorhead has 19 ninth-grade, junior varsity and varsity events scheduled on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12 of which are away contests.
