I ended up having to call the school board today, since our kids' school did not return our phone call. I was told to call the bus barn and find out if they have some form of monitoring system for the kids. I called the Bus Barn. They don't. So I called the school board back and they're looking into the matter and will call us back. I hope the school board will keep to their word. I'd hate to think that our kids or someone else's kids could end up missing because the bus barn doesn't know who gets on and off the bus!!!!
If I don't get a satisfactory answer, I'll take it up with the city, next. I don't understand why there is not a way to know at all times where the kids are when they are still at school!!
