Can someone from the Patchogue-Medford BOE and/or Administration please explain why busing was taken away from several students throughout the district, including my child who attends Tremont, without officially notifying parents? This is a major change, and with major change, it seems only fair that parents should have been officially notified by the school district with ample time to make alternative arrangements. Many parents, myself included, realized this change when bus passes were not received when students received their teacher notification one week prior to the start of school. I have tried to contact the Transportation office several times, and NO ONE has an answer or has returned my calls. When the district keeps talking about doing things "for the kids", this certainly seems like something that is AGAINST the kids. When the bus drives on my street to pick up the other children that receive busing, I guess we'll have to wave. DO THE RIGHT THING AND RESTORE THE BUSING! The district is making enemies of many parents who always help to pass your budget.
