LIBERT TWP, Ohio – The Lakota Local School District brought back busing for 2,400 of its students Monday.
That’s a relief for many parents of students in grades two through six districtwide, including Bridget Rueter of Liberty Twp., whose Trails of Four Bridges community lost busing in early 2011.
When her sons — 10-year-old Will and 7-year-old Carson — started attending Independence Elementary, it “took some management” to organize a car pool that would compensate for the lack of busing, Rueter said.
“I’ve had a couple of different car pools over the years and one year we even used private busing,” she said. “I have a very flexible work schedule … I know for some people it was quite a hardship.”
Rueter said she was excited to having busing reinstated.
