Take your child to school

I understand your worries about your child being dropped off early and I'm sorry for your situation, but here is my problem. All buses cannot go down a dirt road. I was born in Wilmington 41 years ago and when I went to elementary school I lived down a dirt road and I was dropped off by the school bus at the end of the road and had to walk to my house. When I got off the bus my mother was there to wait for me. She was always there 15-20 minutes earlier than usual because of the bus schedule. I'm sure your child is not the only child who lives down a dirt road, but I don't think its the school's responsibility to call you if the bus driver is running early or late. If the school did that for your child they would have to do it for every other child and that would be outrageous. I feel if you don't like them being early or late have a friend or family member that you trust pick up your child and take your child to school. I do, however believe that if the bus is supposed to be at your stop at 7:00 it should not be there at 6:30 because that is why they make bus schedules so that the children can be there at the appropriate time to catch the bus. Everything is not perfect I hope you get your situation resolved, but I really think that we are only hearing a portion of what is going on. Hope everything works out !
