Hard to believe that this has not brought every parent out in force probably armed. serious creep factor.

I think that is a bussing issue but I agree the older kids should go later in the day because biologiclly older kids do better when they wake up later than younger kids do, I remember seriously dragging rear end having to be to high school at 7:30.

when i was about 6 years old, a random dude (stranger) tried pretty hard to convince me to let him give me a ride home.
i did not.

why? because i'd been taught what to do in those kinds of situations.

i hope kids are still getting this in public schools. if not there, from their parents as well.

I find it odd how many parents let their children walk around at night in Anchorage.
