Friday there was a offical from the school out talking to parents and doing a rough head count on the kids at the bus stop. Apparently our buses are over full so they are going to have to add a 3rd bus to the route! And by route - it's 1 sub division with 2 bus stops. Just an insane amount of kids live here and it seems to be growing by the day! Anyway, now there will be 1 bus for K-2nd, 1 bus for 3-5th and 1 bus for 6-8th... which means my two will be on seperate buses. =\ I'm not thrilled with that. He said they were going to discuss a plan to allow sibs to ride together but nothing was set in stone yet. I hope they do, I don't trust Jay to get off the bus at the right stop - granted there are only two, there is just soo much traffic and kids it would be a disaster!

That's too bad...I'm glad my kids got to ride together this year. That's great they are aware of the overcrowding issues and taking steps to correct it though. I've seen kids here riding four to a seat, and no one seems to care. It's all about money...or the lack of money I guess.

Four to a seat?! Wow! By law here each kid has to have their own seat on a school bus, they can't share.

Try not to worry too much, they're usually pretty good about it. My son was riding the bus when he was 4, he's our only kid so there was no sibling to take care of him and he never got off at the wrong stop or had any issues at all. Once the drivers get to know the kids they're usually pretty good about trying to keep a little bit of an eye on them...especially the smaller ones.

Glad their solving the problem. I'd rather deal with separate buses than over crowded buses. It would be nice to have them together but if they're really are that many kids in your neighborhood they need to do something.

Well they are bench seats...I think they are allowed to have two middle or high school kids per seat and three elementary kids. But four is over the limit for sure.
