a schoolbus of private school in china, takes the students to school in the morning and back home in the afernoon. we know the bus needs to be on time, but it's really hard to get to each stop on time. if the traffic is ok the bus can get on time or even earlier, but if you meet the rush hour or congestion, it will be late.so on the schoolbus agreement there's a rule writing:every student has to get to the bus stop 5 minutes earlier before the appointed time. if the bus is late, as the parent of students, you've to wait for longer, can you receive it? if the schoolbus is earlier just one or two minutes(on the agreement you need to get to the stop 5 minutes earlier) , but you are not on the stop,do you think the bus needs to wait for you? a common problem, expecting your idea! thank you !

Hi Rose. I rode a school bus as a child, so did my children, and I've had to on occasion get a grandchild to the bus stop on time. I always made sure to be early enough not to miss it, and since they seldom run more than just a few minutes late, I do not mind the wait. They do have to maintain the rules, and they have many students to be responsible for getting to school on time. It's fine with me to accomodate that by seeing that my child is there on time. Karen

but i met a addiion. the school bus was earlier than the appointed time by 2 minutes. and the stident was not there, so we went on by calling the parent. but the parent was very angry about that, and she called to the headmaster to say sometims the schoolbus was late and we should be responsible to that. we should arrive at the stop at the correct time.
