The transportation issue has come up in numerous emails and discussions with our athletes. When the School Board voted to change the start time for high schools, they neglected to address the athletic start times and the impact it would have on early dismissals. I’ve talked to our athletic director and at this point, we can’t change the situation. It’s distressing to me as a coach and parent to ask students to miss classes. I requested a 2:15 bus and each week, it’s changed to 1:00to accommodate the elementary school schedule. The girls miss out on the camaraderie of riding the bus together.

I understand your frustration. Please know that I continue to work on the issue and make changes for 2017.

Coach Donna
