i'm not sure if this was discussed or not. but i found it interesting that we aren't hearing from bus drivers.
so i looked up info on the bus company etc.
all stars transportation was awarded a contract last year to transport kids from and to all newtown schools
it was reported by parents that the drivers behaved rudely to them, were late or often didn't show up, had strange rituals using puppets to calm kids
down, and there was one comment that a bus driver picked up and dropped off a kid in a area that seemed to be out of the way for the kid. calling the
bus's stops very bizarre.

Last week I saw a bus pull out of the Middle School lot, take a right onto Queen St., and then stop directly in front of the school (on the street).
The red lights went on, the arm came down, etc , and 2 kids got out and walked across the street.
Is there really a Middle School bus stop directly in front of Middle School?
These kids could have just walked from the front door (or any door) of the school to the crosswalk (where a crossing guard was on duty), and crossed
the street to get home. Plus, the kids would be home sooner - they wouldn't have to sit on the bus for however long just to get dropped off 50 yards
later. It didn't look like this was a mistake. I saw the bus pull out of the MS parking lot, and then it stopped directly in front of the school. And
2 kids got off the bus, and walked to the west side of Queen St., then appeared to go up a side road (not sure what the name of that road is).
This was very bizarre. Hopefully it was a one-time event. Why would 2 kids get on a bus at the side of the school, be dropped off at the front of the
school, and then cross the street to walk, I presume, to their homes?
quite a few comments from parents on the bus drivers performance are listed at end of this article
it was voted a couple weeks before the shooting that all star transportation would like their diesel tank to be moved to an exclusive tank located at
a 13 pecks lane parking lot/building. they were approved and would no longer share a fueling station with other newtown staff, police, and maintenance
vehicles. the reason for the request was so that they would not have to wait in line with other vehicles. but comments on an article talking about the
move stated that this was inaccurate and had never seen any vehicles waiting in line during his use of the original fueling station. that police cars
use gas and very few vehicles other than busses use diesel, so a line is never an issue. article/comments here:
newtown school district approves exclusive diesel tank and lot
for busses to use.
another person commented that, everyone had a key or something that could track mileage and gas usage per vehicle at the long time station. the new
tank that busses would be refueling at did not have this ability from his knowledge. the new tank was approved with a provision that it had to have a
barrier in case it was sabotage or there was a spill.all star would own the tank but newtown would purchase the fuel for the busses. general business
