GREENBELT, Md. (ABC7) — Many kids expect a great first day of school, but it wasn’t for Tony Blount’s 11-year-old and 13-year-old.
He says the school bus never picked his daughters up on Wednesday morning.
“We had no communication at all,” said Blount. “Sat out here for about 30/40 minutes, wound up driving the kids to school.”
The Greenbelt Middle schoolers ended up being late for school, according to Blount.
Then they had more problems, in the afternoon, with their school bus.
“When we got on the bus, the driver didn’t know where he was going,” said Blount’s daughter. “People were like directing him where to go and stuff.”
“They didn’t get home until an hour and twenty minutes after they were supposed to get here,” said Blount.
Blount says he never received a response from the bus lot after several calls or any details on why the bus was late.
“There needs to be better communication, because who wants to send their child to school on a bus, where today is a rainy day, what if there was an accident on the road,” said Blount. “As a whole PG county needs to be more responsive.”
We reached out to Prince George’s County Public Schools, so far we have not received a statement regarding the matter.
