Why are kids that are bused to private schools allowed to bring their athletic equipment on the bus, ie: baseball bats? My son was NOT allowed to bring his baseball bats on the bus and he was expected to make other arrangements to get his equipment to school. Doesn’t seem very fair!

A.  We do apologize for the misunderstanding. Baseball bats are allowed on the bus only if they are placed inside a bag which would keep the bat from becoming a flying projectile in case of an accident. Here’s a link to the Shen Transportation website, you will find more information on what the rules are with regards to what a child is and is not allowed to bring onb oard a school bus. Please note the information on the website is not all inclusive. https://www.shenet.org/departments-services/transportation/
