Lee Middle student tired of school bus delays

The Newnan Times-Herald

I am writing to you because of the bus situation in Coweta County.

My teachers keep telling me that Coweta County has enough bus drivers. I do not think that this is true.

The bus that takes me to school is late every day. I live in SummerGrove, and the bus does not pick me up until 8:10 a.m. From my house, it takes about 25 minutes to get to Lee Middle School.

While riding the bus, I never get to school in time to go to my homeroom. I am sure that I am missing important announcements or things that I need to know.

Sometimes, I am also late to my first block class, which is band. I don't like to be late to band because it is my favorite subject.

I think that Coweta County needs more bus drivers so that I can get to school on time. Or maybe they can let another group of kids be late for a few days.

It seems like someone else can take a turn being late. If there is anything that you can do to help me, please let me know.
