I was at work, and received a phone call at 3.45 from school informing me that DD had missed the bus, and could someone come and pick her up please? She had forgotten that she was to come home on the bus tonight. But surely someone should have remembered and reminded her?
And while I am at it, I am pissed off that at home she is reading far more advanced books than she is at school, and has had the same school book for over a week. I am sick of asking for someone to reassess her reading level.
is she allowed on the bus on her own? is it a school bus then? or a public one?
I had to arrange a taxi for tomorrow to take my ten year old to school (exhaust broke on way home tonight) and had to call 4 taxi firms as none wanted to take her. Will a bus company really take a six year old on her own?
Sorry, but if she isn't old enough to remember she's not old enough for the bus. My 6 year old DD will be getting the school bus next year some days, but only if her 15 year old brother is with her because I know he will not get on the bus without her.
It is inexcusable that they do not use a check list.
at our school we also have a telephone tree system so if there is any problem with bus being late (or early if snowing) or, heaven forbid, breaking down/accident, the school phones a few parents who then have agreed to pass on the word to others who use same bus drop off point
Have seen the head and told him what I think of his organisational skills. I think I have been labelled as a troublemaker. Hehehehe. Give em hell, they need a kick up the arse I say! If I had more time, I would join the PTA, but would probably be austracised (outcast).
