Parents are asked to be patient as busing still not under control
Patience patience, schools and the LSTA are asking frustrated parents to hold out a bit longer as busing issues are worked on. More bids were picked up by bus companies, while some schools are still without busing. Schools that have busing are also running into problems with buses showing up late or not showing up at all. One school had busing last week but than lost busing service this week. Bus companies from nearby towns are being wooed to bid and pick up routes that are still available. Not resolved yet why the township paid $2 million for the courtesy busing for public school children yet private school non mandated courtesy busing are charged a $150 per child fee. Some schools sent home notes charging parents, but the charge is coming from the LSTA and not the school. The BOE has a fleet of 30 buses paid by tax payers that are empty at certain times but so far the private mandated busing can not use them.
