Expecting Parents to Provide Transport to Sports Events within School Day

DS1 is at junior school and has been selected to represent the school at tag rugby next week during the school day. I've just received a letter asking me to provide transport due to "health & safety regulations". I work full-time, my DH works full-time, we have no other family within a 100 mile radius and I'm not prepared to send him off with a random parent, particularly as I can never return the favour. The event is during the school day and finishes at "around" 5pm. I'm resisting emailing the school right now but I'm furious - I don't think it's up to parents to do this, is it? Any ideas on how I approach this as I've got all weekend to stew over it.

We don't know how tall OP's DS is, but I am 5ft 6ins and some juniors look down on me!
Perhaps OP could come back and say what she thinks the school should do with no minibus and no money.
