All my children attend School within Hazlehurst district everyday. We get up early each morning around 6am, getting them ready for School. As they stood outside waiting for the bus and it never showed up. And I was wondering what was going on with the bus driver again? We waited for hour and 1/2 or more. I knew something had to be wrong, because there where a lot of kids waiting on the bus. Some parents went to work not knowing their children might be stranded outside without a way to School or even a key to get back into the house! It was down right unresponsive of what these Bus drivers put the children and parents through today! It was ridiculous!!! The School should have been notified and letters sent home to the parents of children riding buses.. It all came as a big surprise, and we didn't get anything in writing! There been many times the bus was late coming and going picking the kids up and dropping them off! Until I begin looking down the street worried about my kids getting home like they should. Now I have to worry about finding gas to get my kids back and forth to School for a week straight. The Hazlehurst School officials told us that we will have to drop our kids off around 9:00 am and pickup around 4:30pm.

Is the State Board of Education ignoring our conerns about our drivers getting their due pay and our assistants not getting holiday pay? Why are we charged 2 and three times a month against our state pension funds with the minimum income that we receive. We are dedicated professional people working with children daily and yet there is no regard for our economic status.

Please, pay the bus drivers. Hazlehurst City School District has a respectful group of drivers that responsibly provide transportation for our children. Be fair, just and most of all just pay the drivers their money.
