Freeport, Illinois – Years ago we remember hearing many stories of parents with children who ride the bus in Freeport and numerous concerns and complaints about long bus rides.
One parent early today stated this his daughter is just 4 years old and in preschool and that she goes to school from 8:30 to 12:00, which is 3 1/2 hours.
The parents concern? She gets on the bus at 6:55 and gets home around 1:20 which is a total of 3 hours on the bus everyday. Three hours, for her 3 1/2 hours of school.
We’d like to know what your experience is.
