Cassville R-IV Schools began on August 18, 2011. And man, did my route change. It is a little longer.
I now go down to the place by the Lake I did when I first took the route four years ago. Down there I pick up two little girls who are a couple of sweet little girls, but need to learn how to stay in their seats, and be quiet; especially one of them; the youngest.
I do not think people realize how much of a distraction moving around and a loud voice can be to a bus driver. It really is though. One sudden move can call the driver’s attention to the mirror and away from the road. Sure we have training, and experience, yet, even the best and most professional driver can mess up, by a child’s scream and such as that.
