Frustrated with School busing

DS is starting JK on Tuesday and we still have not heard back regarding his busing. We should have received something in the mail last week but we didn't. I call the busing company and they say he is not registered for busing, I call the school and they say they have been trying to register him and a bunch of other kids but the system is not working. He is all excited about going on the bus but I might have to drive him until this all gets cleared up. I hope that happens fast because I just want to have some answers. The joys of sending your first child to school.

Sad that is frustrating! We live 3 blocks from school, so when my oldest starts kindergarten this year, we will be walking most days.

My daughter just started kindergarten this year. She loves it. Anyway, my husband I only have one car right now and he wants her to ride the bus so he can take the car to work (there's no one dependable around us he can carpool with). I have to fill out forms and take them up to the place to register her.

I do have a question, where you guys live, do you have to pay for the bus? If we didn't qualify we'd have to pay for a bus pass for her to ride the bus. Luckily we don't make enough in their standards and get free bus rides.

Katie- we qualify for busing because we live far enough away from the school, plus the 2 roads that connect us to the school are really busy and have no sidewalks, so they deem that you cannot walk to school, so it qualifies us. It is also free so we do not have to pay. The school is suppose to automatically register them for busing and then the transportation people tell you if you qualify.
