This event occurred on Monday here in my area. I first saw it on the news and actually turned off the news because it was so difficult. Unfortunately in situations like this, it generally ends up staring me smack in the face anyway. For a variety of reasons, which shrewd readers will ascertain, this was a very difficult event for me. I can tell you all that Anusha was a very loved and cared for little girl. Unfortunately because of the way things happened Anusha did not survive.
Parents are now stepping up efforts to get that bus stop moved into the development. What actually angers me is that the first time parents asked to move that stop was at leat 3 years ago. The school system has cited inconvienience of navigating more narrow subdivision streets.
It is heartbreaking to me that the school system was more concerned about inconvienience than they were about safety. Based on results, this was not a safe place for children, who are less careful, and more impulsive to catch a bus.
On top of that, the school system now only states that it is "considering" moving the stop! Awful.
Update The school boards response….they hed a moment of silence at their regular meeting. Thats it. Ridiculous.
