A few parents have called to ask me why the bus drivers are dropping kids off at the stop without a parent present. I know our old bus drivers did this for certain people because they knew the families and had an understanding. We have a new bus company and three new drivers who do not know the children. If you want them to only drop your child off when an adult is there, you must write a note to BJ so we have it on file. I checked with VT DCF to see if there was any age limit attached to children being dropped off at a bus stop alone and they said no. Many children across the state do not have an adult present when they are dropped off at their bus stop. That being said, Student Transportation of America and I absolutely want to honor all parents who want this safety precaution in place.
Please send in a note to BJ asap and we will make sure each driver gets a copy of your request.
Thank you very much!
