As Nancy Carter’s husband dropped off their sixth grader at Pine Grove Elementary School’s half-day orientation on Thursday, she lingered around the bus stop with her dog to see what time the school bus would arrive. It pulled up at 8:15 a.m., the same time that the first class started. The daughter rode the bus back home that afternoon. The return bus was scheduled to arrive at the school at 11:45 a.m. but didn’t get there to pick her daughter up until 12:30 p.m. She also has a fourth grader.
