what do you think? Bus driver left my 2nd grader at the stop
My daughter is on the bus for AN HOUR in the afternoon. My X was supposed to PICK HER UP FROM SCHOOL and didn't so they put her on the bus back to my house but I didn't show up at the bus stop to pick her up because as far as I knew, my X was picking her up from school. So The doorbell rings and its my daghter out of breath and very upset. The school she goes to services children from a wide area so the drop off areas are sometimes up to 10 blocks (we live in a city) from home. So I call the school to see about the drop off and they say that as long as the child says they know how to get home they are allowed to be dropped off alone. 2 things though. 1: we live in a MAJOR CITY... 2: we have to cross 3 busy streets to get to the bus stop. So even though they have that rule, I still believe my 2nd grader is incapable of safely walking herself home. Not to say I would ever miss the bus again, but accidents happen and I would much rather they take her back to the school and me get into some sort of trouble for not being there, than to have her left at the bus stop without an adult. What do you think? Shes in second grade and the ONLY child that gets off at her stop. He didn't even wait for her to cross the street (with his blinkie lights and stop sign out) before he pulled away.
