Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

Subject:     School Bus Issues


Once again we are hearing serious concerns relating to late arrival (AM) (PM) (AM + PM) times of school buses.

Parents, as well as teachers, have raised concerns that some students are missing class/services/breakfast in the morning due to late arrivals or not being picked up and in the afternoon, students are arriving home at 6-7 PM after buses didn't arrive for pickup until as late as 6pm!

Teachers who have childcare and other responsibilities have similar concerns.

If you stay beyond your scheduled release time, you should fill out a time card to be paid for the extra time. Maybe that will speed up fixing the problems.
