We need to reinstate the in-town school bus routes for our Minster students.

This is becoming an overly stressful burden on our families determining how to redirect our time and resources so we can get our children to and from school. Not only do we have the normal day-to-day schedules, we need to take into account delays, cancellations, sick children, etc.

Aside from the potentially extreme and unpredictable weather conditions, our community now needs to worry about human trafficking! It only takes one trafficker to notice that more children (and younger children at that) are traveling to and from school alone. Human trafficking and missing children statistics in Ohio are staggering. 

While appreciating the school’s attempt to alleviate childcare concerns by offering the before/after school care, it is not fair that people currently providing childcare will be out of an income (yet again). Families in our community, outside of school-aged children, are being deeply impacted by the decision to cancel these routes. For many of us, we simply will not subject our children to the Health Department's in-school guidelines for any longer than necessary. Therefore, this alternative is not an option.

Furthermore, several of our neighboring schools are starting their own in-town bus routes this year for their community. 

It is crucial that Minster Local Schools reconsider this decision!

*The school responded to our concerns and stand by their position.
