Wow, ever heard of roadside assistance? So glad they are spending quality time checking each bus way before they fill it with our children. what a country we live in.

God forbid you teachers go to work and teach the ones who can make it to school. Gasp! That wouldn't be fair to the ones who can't make it though. ItÂ’s imperative that we be fair because, as we all know, life is extremely fair.

Yeah cause it totally makes sense that they should expect to have to spend hours dragging an air compressor around to refill all of the tires on all of the buses every morning. How about instead of "FED UP" you use the name "SMARTEN UP"?

This type of vandalism is always happening. What about putting the busses in a secure location where they won't get vandalized. Or is there no such place?

Couldnt they have a delayed start day like other districts do in bad weather or fog? Arent the schools that organnized to have a plan B?

Is it really vandalism, or just a prank? I agree that it was not the smartest thing the kids could do, but at least they didn't destroy the tires.

But then again, it might have not been the kids. Maybe someone else wanted to be ornery.

Shouldn't cancel classes because of this. That is encouraging this kind of thing, which is nothing new, by the way. What is new is cancelling classes because of it.

If someone does this to all the COTA busses, do we get a day off of work?

Sure, for all 15 people who take COTA to get to work.

The sad thing about this is just think of all the families with both parents working that needed to either take the day off or scramble to find a babysitter.
If the kids that vandalized the busses are found, I hope there punishment is consistent with the number of people they adversly affected - and the parents should face some punishment as well.
My fear is this just gets laughed off and the kids get a slap on the wrist.
What a joke

You lazy, fat, Obama fools need busses to get an education.
Give me a break. I hope you get your boy Strickland for another term.

Hope it counts as a "snow/school emergency day" and makes them go over the number so they have to stay in school longer in June.

I think they should make the students go to school on Saturday then. The ones that know anything will talk.

I bet it was Pee Wee from Porky's. Those kids were always messing with people's tires.
