Bus or driving?
For those entering school this year... will your child be riding the bus or will you be driving him/her to school?

Bus :) It's going to be Veronika's 2nd year taking the school bus so I'm not worried. She rides together with Natasha to school and by herself on the way back since she's still 1/2 day.

We will drive him most of the time. We don't live in the district he will attend but can take the bus from his current preschool. DH's school is within sight of Coop's school which is awesome.

I was on the fence about this a while back but have decided to drive him. He would be on a bus with kindergarten through fifth grade and I have a problem with that. They have assigned seating but it didn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Plus he would be catching the bus almost an hour before school starts. I like my kid too much to have him away from me that long.

Re: Bus or driving?
My girls have always ridden the bus to and from. We've had the same bus drivers every year and I'm pretty comfortable with it. Our elementary schools are split, with k-2 in one school and 3-5 in another. I feel better knowing that my 5 year old is only on the bus with kids thru 2nd grade. We have assigned seats as well.

This is Keeley's 2nd year in full time school and we walk there and back every day, its a 5 minute walk from our house.

Carrie will ride the bus with Matt and Beth. I hope they have the same driver as last year, he was really great. Thankfully they have a short ride both ways.

He will ride the bus. Our bus driver is amazing but I am still not a fan of behavior that happens on the bus.

Re: Bus or driving?
Undecided. LOL - isnt that crazy?! But I just got him switched to AM from a PM session and so I will need to pick him up at lunchtime. And the bus schedule doesn't come out until Thursday so I don't know where or what time they pick up in the morning. I do know that if he rides the bus, it would only be for K-2 so that makes me feel ok if we decide to go with that.

Re: Bus or driving?
Ellie doesn't have an option. The school is small and private so we have to drive. Thankfully, our daycare provider has about 6 other kids attending the same school. That really eased my mind. I was kind of stressing before I made the decision to send her to the school. If she attended the local public school she would be on the bus for about 45 min each way. I just felt like that was way too long for a 5 yr old.

Re: Bus or driving?
My girls are riding the bus this year and love it. I am still nervous about the older kids, but so far it is going well.
