Unhappy with the new MASD transportation plan for 2018-19? Sign here!
The new MASD transportation plan for the 2018-19 school year calls for mixing students from a wide age range on buses, increased ride times, unnecessary bus transfers by children as young as 5 years old, and in some cases, different morning and afternoon stop locations that can be confusing to younger kids.
In particular, non-public students will now be expected to ride to the senior high school and transfer buses at the end of the school day, which is of great concern to the parents of students as young as 5 years old. In addition, these non-public students who are dismissed as early as 2:40 pm will now be expected to wait until 3:20 pm or later to depart for their homes, as that is the time the high school students are dismissed.
Join us in letting the school district know that the new transportation plan is not acceptable.
