Why would u drive on the shoulder for that many feet slowly going over the side? You dont have to be a Einstein to know Her story don't match up at all. I wished she would tell the truth. It WILL COME OUT. Like I tell my kids. It is best to tell the truth out of your own mouth. You get into more trouble when it comes out in the laudry. Shes really concern isnt she? I know her phone has ran off the hook calling and checking on the kids and adults who she messed up. If you see her in town she don't ask about the kids. This should of never happened if the school listened to the many complaints made on her. YET alone her health issues. Enjoy now everyone pays for their choices.

Well I for one hope to not see her driving a bus next year. My children will not go to any functions if she is driving. Her daughter took over driving for her at end of school year and she had brain surgery. Don't get me wrong I know we have some wonderful bus drivers but we need some stiffer bus driver laws regarding drivers with health problems and should be looked at yearly.

Well Great another fine bus driver. Still there is 1 more who has not been spoken of yet. I guess if you can pass the driving test you get hired at Carlisle. Sadly a few is giving the school such a bad name. Carlisle it is about time u start looking at people for who they are. Not who they know or blow.

All I will say is: Let me drive with no drugs in my system and kill an innocent person and see where I get to sleep at. Wouldnt be in my cozy home.

People instead of getting on here and complaining about the school system, CALL YOUR BOARD MEMBERS!! let the elected officials know your feelings at every moment of concern. That whole system from top to bottom needs some people cleaned out but it takes each and every person that has an issue to send a letter or make a call to their board member things would be looked at more seriously and may get some of the buddy system out if each person that had a concern sent it to them. You have a superintendent that doesn't pay property taxes in this county but yet is pushing to raise them you have administrators that don't need to be making decisions that have a negative effect on many. Call, write, or get involved as a collective group. The Board posts meeting times and it is open to the public go and voice your concerns respectively not by sounding off on here.

Laura yes I have been to one of the board meetings there and they sit behind their individual laptops with out a clue and politics as usual. Pass the buck to whomever is a likely person. Why do 6 people in a small area need their own computer when more than half the ones that students need don't work. What a joke and it is only getting worse for the students that have to attend.

With that said.. Why contact board members? You get no where with it. They give an excuss for every action taken there.
