My grandson, whom I have custody of, is a student at this school. I pick my grandson up every day; he is a car rider. On May 3 of this year, I waited in the pickup zone for him, no grandson. THEY COULD NOT FIND HIM...HE Wasn't AT SCHOOL, HE Wasn't ON THE BUS; THEY DID NOT KNOW WHERE HE WAS AT...NOR WERE THEY CONCERNED. THEY NONCHALANTLY TOLD ME HE Wasn't THERE, MAYBE HE GOT ON THE BUS NO CALL TO BUSES, NO SEARCH FOR HIM, NO 911-NOTHING!!! THEY DID NOT KNOW WHERE THEIR STUDENT WAS!
