Re: Not happy with our elementary school!
I think it's ridiculous. So far we've dealt with two different schools in the same district and both schools have a complete list of students and their bus routes, numbers, pick up, and drop off times available on "meet the teacher/orientation" day. It doesn't matter whether your child is carpooling, doing afterschool care, or being picked up by daycare vans. If you are in the district, they have the bus route and information ready for you. The ONLY exceptions are kids that live close enough to be walkers. Basically they have it set up for everyone and you kind of opt out of it by filling out a form that declares your alternate transportation.
There should have been a master list in the front office the office staff could reference.
