Parents Upset At Dangerous Bus Stop Location
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A dangerous St. Louis
school bus stop location has parents upset. The desolate stretch of road surrounded by
vacant buildings is a school bus stop for KIPP-Wisdom Academy. A parent
says she is upset a dangerous and unsafe location has been chosen for
her son to wait for a school bus. The bus stop is located at 19th and
North Market in north St. Louis. The stop is surrounded by overgrown grass,
warehouses and boarded up buildings. The bus is owned and operated by
First Student. An upset parent told a local news station that she tried
calling the bus company and claims she got the runaround.
The KIPP System has stepped in and worked with First Student to relocate
the bus stop. School officials say First Student places bus stops based
on a student's addresses. The district promises to do everything they
can to ensure the safety of every student. The district officials say
a public place that’s well-trafficked with good crosswalks are safe
and ideal locations for a bus stop. There are often challenges in the
first few weeks of school that takes some time to iron out, says a district
spokesperson. However, an upset parent said it took too long for the district
to respond and it put her child in danger.
