My son is a newly-minted Freshman at Newton North, and is playing on the Freshman soccer team. We found out late last week that there would be no daily bus for the team to practices at Warren Field (2.5 miles from NNHS), so parents of the 30-40 players will have to scramble to find rides for them after school- every day.

I know buses cost money- everything does, but as parents we were all caught aback by the lack of what seems like ┬ábasic need for the team to function – and yes, I suppose our $300 fee is eaten up in other ways. Does anyone else here have any perspective on the how and why of this maddening system deficiency?
