District 80 pursues major grants


In addition Wednesday, the board heard from local parent Mandy Bejma, who expressed concern about the length of time her child spends on the return bus ride home from the Primary Center.

Children are supposed to be dropped off within an hour after school ends. However, Bejma said her daughter was brought home around 5 p.m. on several days, which is too long, she said.

“There’s other neighbors that have the same concerns, but they couldn’t come tonight,” Bejma said.

Green took down Bejma’s information and said he would look into the matter. Sometimes delays like this occur because of a substitute driver getting lost, Green said.

Other board actions Wednesday included:

n Hearing of a Red Ribbon Proclamation by Primary Center students.

n Hearing of reports on the Dr. Andy Hall Early Education Center and the Head Start program.

n Discussion of the upcoming parent-teacher conferences.
