School Buses Partially Reinstated For Remainder of School Year

April 19, 2013 /

Late last year, Merced High School Districts bus routes were cut to students that lived within five miles of their respective high schools. This burdened many high school students and their families with the task of finding their own way to get to school, a safe way to return home and continue to perform well in class. However, a small victory was achieved as the school district recently reinstated busing through an emergency board meeting.

School Transportation

February 7, 2013 /

Students have been walking two to three miles every day just to get to and from school. Back when 
this school year started the weather was fine to walk in but ever since fall began, the weather has been getting worse and lately it’s been cold and
rainy. Some students walk
on streets with no sidewalks, like the students who have to wade through parts of Childs Avenue to get to Golden Valley High School. Not only are there no sidewalks in some of these areas but also some parts are easily flooded when it rains. How are they expected to get to school on time or even make it to school?
