Bus 43 has not been covered for two days now, March 2, 2015 and March 3, 2015. I'm a single mother who is disabled and has no vehicle. The only help I have with my son is his 68 yr old grandmother who cannot drive him to school each day in this cold weather. It's no wonder that my son and myself ended up being sick with upper respiratory issues and he had an earache which resulted in draining ear for close to two weeks of absenses at the end of February. After being in the cold for approximately 45 minutes each time he's been waiting for the bus, I expect we'll both end up sick again. Please have the attendance person contact me and not leave confusing messages with my 68 year old mother. Thank you.
