Dear Bus Company,
Many of your buses did not enter our development this morning to pick up our children. You may have had good reason. The roads are narrow, the cars parked away from the curbs and your buses would not be able to get thru. You want to be sure not to damage your buses or other vehicles . You do not want to run late. The problem is that you did not let any of the parents affected by your company decision (or the impulsive decision of the bus driver) know. This left children waiting and waiting, playing in the snow, waiting for their bus which will never arrive. You left children in a situation fraught with danger because you did not let the parent s know. Many parents have left to yeshiva or work and would never know if not for caring neighbors.
It is incumbent upon the bus company to advise parents ahead of time if the bus is not coming because no monetary or time consideration can ever justify leaving children in harm’s way. You are entrusted to ensure that our children arrive safely to and from school, and when you act so irresponsibly you are not deserving of that trust.
A concerned parent
