1. Start/End time of each school. It is important to us, and the parents, that we pickup the children within minutes of them being dismissed, and also drop them off within minutes of school start times. This ensures that they are not waiting around too long outside the school either before or after class, so we have a certain window in the mornings and afternoons that we need to fit everything in to. For example, if Sandy Hill Elementary gets out at 2:33pm, and Centennial Park Elementary gets out a 2:38pm, but the schools are 20 minutes apart, then the only way to service both schools is to have one bus attend one school while the second bus attends the other. Otherwise, we have children waiting outside the school, for extended periods of time, which just isn’t an option.
