Parents seeking improved bus service to Charlie Lake Elementary

In addition, the children are at the school an hour early as well as an hour after class.

In a letter addressed to the school board, the parents argue that their children get picked up earlier than some other roads in the area, despite being closer to Charlie Lake Elementary. They are asking the board to find a solution before winter arrives.

At Tuesday night's Board Meeting, Secretary-Treasurer Doug Boyd pointed out that the current bus system already costs them $170,000 more than they are receiving, and that with the rising cost of fuel, that number will go up.

The school board referred their request to the Committee meeting at the beginning of October. However, they had a warning for the parents present: "Don't hold your breath," admitting things don't happen as quickly as they would like.
