WEXFORD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BUS 809
The undersigned of this petition ask Monarch Transportation and Pine Richland School district to please consider the best interests of our students by changing the current bus schedule for BUS 809. Over a period of three years, the bus arrival time in the evenings has gotten progressively later. It is not uncommon for the bus to arrive after 4:30, sometimes significantly later. The scheduled time for the past two years has been 4:14, yet
the bus has never come anywhere near that arrival time. The earliest the bus has ever arrived at the corner of Greenwood and Windwood is 4:27 pm and there are additional bus stops after this one.
This bus is completely packed, with most students sitting 3 to a seat. This also lends itself to behavioral challenges for children riding the bus with backpacks in their seats for 45 minutes. Further, it is difficult for families with other children to plan to meet the bus and pick up other children due to the inconsistent schedule.
We appreciate the efforts of our driver, Shirl who has been great with the kids over the years.
The signatories of this petition ask that if the bus cannot on a daily basis arrive at the scheduled times, that re-routing or other steps be taken to ensure that students and their families are not unnecessarily burdened by travel to and from school.
