June 22nd, 2017:
2017 Crews: If you DID NOT receive a letter from Ailes Detasseling within the past week stating that we may not be able to accommodate you on our crews, then assume you have been hired. If you DID NOT receive a letter from Ailes Detasseling within the past week, then you should receive a direct phone call from an Ailes Detasseling representative when we are ready for you to begin work. If you DID NOT receive a letter from Ailes Detasseling within the past week, we are planning to have you work on our crew this summer, barring any acts of Mother Nature on our allotted number of detasseling acres. The seed companies are saying we may potentially have a sooner start date for this season, if the hot weather continues. Approximate starting date is sometime in the window of July 5th – 8th.
Bus Return Times: We are going to attempt to use text notification during the season for approximate return times of buses. To opt in for this free service (less your cell carrier plan for receiving texts) send a text message to 81010 with the text @busret
– You will then be prompted to reply with your full name.
– You will then be prompted to reply if you are a parent or student.
I am going to experiment with this option for the next couple of weeks to see if it will be a viable way for efficient communication. Please continue checking here for updates on this option. Thanks
Buses that work:
Once the season begins, check here on a nightly basis to ensure your bus works the following day.
Working buses will always be posted by 7pm nightly, during the season.
