I have a question. Why in the world are children at a bus stop at 6:45 in the morning? If we are going to have "daylight savings", then we need to make provisions, like starting school an our later, to keep children safe. As bad as this is, it could have been much worse! There are predators everywhere!
well when I was in school and asked this question I was told that school started early so that students could have after school jobs and participate in other activities.I had to be at school at 730

They are waiting at the bus stop at that hour to get a jump start on a sub-standard education.

Well we know it wasn't an IPS teacher. They're all too afraid of the students.

I live in a Franklin subdivision and at my kids bus stop there are probably about 12-15 kids every morning. There are 4 houses where the parents stand outside and watch the bus stop faithfully everyday. We dont walk them to the bus stop so they feel they still have their independence, but we are right there if needed. Maybe more parents up in that area could do well to follow an example so that they can make sure their kids are safe. You can go back to sleep after the bus picks them up. First priority should be your kids.
If sleep is a problem for some.... why not get together with other parents and rotate the duties on a weekly basis??? This is a new low, not that I'm surprised, but still this is terrible.
