On Thursday, Nov 16 around 3:15 I watched bus #692 drop a student off who looked to be a kindergartner or 1st grader. The bus pulled over to the side of the road over 100 yards from her stop. The bus door opened, let her off and she ran down the side of a busy road. Anything could have happened. This is unacceptable. The bus should have turned around to let the young child off in a safer manner at her stop, not allowing her to run down a road.

Why does the portal close at the end of the quarter? I feel that not being able to see our grades is very inconvenient unnecessary. Many of my teachers upload grades at the end of the quarter due to end of the quarter exams and homework, and there is always a possibility they may have made a mistake (which is understandable, because it is just normal human error). As far as I know, it is not possible for teachers to change grades after the quarter is over.
