Fellow Marshall Countians:

You all have probably heard the news stories about the sexual molestation that has apparently occurred on the special ed. buses in Nashville and that nobody has done anything because the perpetrators are also mentally challenged.

Well, I want you to know that there is a similar problem going on with a 16 year old who rides one of the buses in Marshall County. This male 16 year old has molested girls as young as EIGHT on the school bus.
I think a couple of the girls' parents have filed charges and maybe something will be done but for now he is still out here, and able to do this again.

PLEASE talk to your children if they ride the school bus. I realize it will take away their innocence, but if you don't, CREEPS LIKE THIS WILL. Tell them that if anyone, ever, asks your child to touch them, kiss them, etc., THIS IS WRONG. And that they should do something, ANYTHING, to get the attention of the bus driver. Scream, run up the middle aisle to the front of the bus, WHATEVER IT TAKES.

Sex offenders aren't all there no matter their age.
The 16 year old doesn't need any more bus rides. If a student gets a bus driver upset they will find another way to get to school. Why not protect the majority from this known student. Prison is full of "not all there" sex offenders. Many are getting away with something that "kills the spirit" of anyone they prey on. Believe me from my own life it will hit like a truck in your middle age from things that happened decades ago. Satan's the source not that 16 year old student. As Christian we know to do more than pray for everyone.
I know Home Schooling is a great way to protect your children.

Need to know more:

The boy rides a bus to the Belfast area. I'm not sure which bus number.

I have a good friend who works with one of his parents, who has gone to work and told what the kid has done. At first nothing was being done because nobody would press charges. Finally someone filed charges and I think he is going through the juvenile legal process.

I do not know if he is still riding the bus, or if he has been kicked off permanently.

I prefer not to give names as he is in the legal process.

But please, please, keep the line of communication open with your kids. If they know the danger, they're less likely to give in and do what's requested of them.

I would love to Home School my kids, but unfortunately I have to feed them and clothe them with my paycheck. So I utilize the public school system for their education while I work to pay for everything else. And it's not a bad school system. My complaint is the whacked out pervert on the bus who is molesting smaller kids.

The first time I saw kids get off a school bus I nearly ckoked. First came these sweet, little 1st and 2nd grade children, then the kids got bigger and bigger as they disembarked the bus. The last kid was as big as my husband! I went to school in a large, Metropolitan district, and we had a bus for each level. There was an elementary bus, a jr. high bus, and a high school bus. We didn't see all the high school kid shenanigans on the bus till we were in high school.

Now you've got high schoolers smoking, making out and god knows what else going on in the back of the bus, with the little guys on the bus too. Shame. I know it would be a money issue, but there needs to be adult supervision on the bus, and I don't mean the driver. The driver has enough to do to get them home safely. Those buses are heavy, they stop slowly and they don't turn on a dime either. There needs to be another non-driving adult on the bus to keep these things from happening.

Sorry got so long winded...but gotta go to work now.

God Bless those who need to work and those who aren't able. Somewhere in TN years ago, on the first day of school, a 5 year old girl was raped by an High School student.

I had also started a topic on this. It was called "Gilbert's story" I had heard about the story on the news.

There are a lot of things that go on during the length of the bus rides. I really think that something should be done, especially if the kids are different ages. I don't think that high school and elementary school kids should be riding together.

Thanks for the information. I also wonder where the other kids are when these things are going on. We need to teach are children to not only protect themselves but if they see other being harmed.

Mom of 2, The kids all riding together shocked me too. One thing that I do like is that my older son rides the bus with my young daughter, so I know she is being looked out for.

Judie,

I have told my kids to ride at the front of the bus. Never at the back. To SCREAM if someone bothers them.

Why would any one start school in this heat
the busses are not air con.
The school board members should ride the busses in the evening in the heat at 95 for the total route before starting school
Bet they would start in Sept. or later

You have to do 178 days for kids, 190 total for teachers. When you take off for every holiday known to man, you have to start early to get the days in. State sets the number of days.

Can they have cell phones at school or on the bus? Bus drivers get attacked or ill is my reason for asking?

LMS handbook says no cell phones at school or on the bus.
Do the cameras on the buses work? Do they even have cameras?
Most children have their cell phones with them, I am sure...so in an 911 event, hopefully, they would call for help. If they have time from texting.....or look up long enough to see that there is a problem.

State says how many days, but not when. local system sets aside all the holidays, fall break, thanksgiving break, christmas break, spring break and then has to come up with a schedule that gets in the right number of days. my point......if we didn't take all the breaks, we wouldn't be in school from Aug 1 to June 1

Excellent point about the heat on the buses. No A/C. I for one rode all last summer without A/C, didn't have the money to fix it. Then this summer decided I would do what it takes to get it fixed.

Are the kids allowed to take bottled water in their backpack for the hot ride home?

My kids are on that bus for nearly an hour.
Regarding the schedule, I am aware they have to go 178 days. Are the breaks necessary? I remember a few years ago something was brought up about a year round schedule and many parents were opposed to it. Is this Marshall County's way of sneaking us into it? Lincoln County IS on a year round schedule and their schedule is very similar to ours. They started last week! They get two weeks off for fall and spring, and I don't know how long they get for Christmas break.

If anyone has any connections, could you find out about the water on the bus? I know the back seat bunch would probably mess it up so it's probably against the rules to drink water on the bus.

I am for saving taxpayer money
But I say put air on each and every bus we have in Marshall county
Let Cornersville city ,Chaphill, and Lewisburg
Cities join with county on this one
If you are going to start early
Air Condition those busses
And schools if any are not
You can bet its hot
