Interesting "Late Bus" Comment Brought to the Front Page

Note from Sallyann: Several days ago an anonymous commentor left a message pertaining to the "late bus " schedule and asked a question on why the bus did not transport students home who were involved in sports. I called the district bus garage for answers and was told the late bus only took students home who were involved in after school programs. For whatever reason, the district does not consider "sports" school related. The "commentor" returned to the blog and left the following comment. I've posted it on the front page of the blog to generate dialogue on the issue. I personally believe the late bus should take students home who are involved in sports. That's why the late bus was started years ago. If someone knows when and why the district changed its policy, please share that information.

The comment: Sally I have been thinking about the school board saying the sports program not being part of the school program.Isn't it odd that the sport programs are not accessable to homeschoolers only if your child is enrolled in public school are our children allowed to participate.Also if our children fail to keep good grades in school they will be kept from participating in the sports activities.Sounds to me like school sports is very much a part of the school. The late bus is being available to kids kept for detention but not students with good behavior that are participating in after school sports is wrong.What do others think?

I think if the school district says sports are not part of the schools programs and late buses are not to be used to transport sport children after school then we should remember this when it is time to vote on school budgets , school up grades,schoolbus purchases, and generaly vote no to any proposals put forth by the current schoolboard and school administration. We as tax payers pay for these buses and drivers wages our children should be able to use the buses any time they need them or the school district should cancel all of there after school programs!

You make a good point. Kids in sports from the rural areas should receive the same consideration as kids who stay after school for whatever reason. Running back and forth to pick up their kids is a hardship on country people. I don't understand why the district won't do this.

The late bus used to pick students up at 5:30 instead of 4:30. Then all of a sudden it changed. There are many students who stay after to "socialize". They aren't in sports or getting help or detention. Since there are so many sports teams, practice isn't always after school but later in the evening which makes it all the more difficult for the rural students.
