OK~ Looking for some thoughts on this one! Our school district announced a two hour delay last evening. Which would mean that everything is running two hours later the next morning. Our son boards the yellow bus at 7:10 a.m.- which would be 9:10 a.m. with a two hour delay. By 8:30 this morning, no new announcements- so on schedule as planned, right? WRONG! At 8:57 a.m. I receive a message- Busses traveling on plowed roads only- So, what does this mean? My brother has blown our road open with a snow blower- road is passable- so, bus will surely come- WRONG, AGAIN!
In my eyes, a school district should not be able to have classes, unless ALL students can get to school. I have said this for years, "The number one priority in any school district, should be to get the kids to school!" Our Departments of Education are so wrapped up in "teacher work days, teacher evaluations, student performance," and two of the most important things are left behind- Yep, I said it, "LEFT BEHIND." Teachers should be able to work on building relationships with students, provided the district has taken the initiative to see that ALL kids can get to school safely! We warmed the truck up and took him to school~ so much for public schools and transportation that is supposed to go along with it!
Maybe this Mom is just making a mountain out of a mole hill- Wake up- When these things happen, I am seeing my tax dollars NOT working for me and I do NOT like it one bit! So, what's a Mom to do- trust me- this Mom is not sitting back on this one! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
