Subject: Bus change
My daughter Kering Grace Rogers is a sixth grader at Christiana Middle
School. Her older sister usually watches her in the afternoon until I get
home from work. She has gotten a job in the afternoons and will not be at
home. I would like for Keri to be able to ride the bus to my sister's house
in the afternoon, so that she may receive proper supervision after school.
My sister lives at blah blah blah. She has two
children attending Christiana Elementary School. Please let me know what bus
number and if this would be allowed until the end of the school year. My
cell phone number is 555-5555 or see my additional contact information
HERE IS THE RESPONSE I RECEIVED:
I'm sorry Ms. Rogers but I will not be able to grant your request. Bus routes and capacities are set up using the
students home address. If students are allowed to ride another bus other than the one they are assigned, it
would cause some buses to be overloaded and some buses to be half empty therefore the county would
have to use more buses than are needed. And to be fair we cannot allow one student to ride a different bus
without allowing all students that same opportunity as we transport 23,000 students each day.
So what's the verdict kind readers?
