Paso Robles High School parents concerned over lack of bus services

Posted at 5:50 PM, Nov 09, 2020

As Paso Robles High School students prepare to go back to the classroom, the issue of busing remains.

The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District is aiming to get the high school students transitioned to a hybrid learning model on Jan. 5, but as of right now, the district isn't providing buses.

This is a challenge for many working parents or families with different grade-level children.

Monday, Nov. 9, is the deadline for Paso Robles High School parents to either opt their kids into a hybrid learning model that is split into mornings and afternoons. or keep them in distance learning/independent study.

Donna Migliorie's daughter is a freshman at the high school. She says her challenge right now is landing a job without knowing her daughter's schedule.

"Right now, I am looking for a job, so I can't really get a job without knowing what my daughter's schedule is, number one. Number two is who is going to hire me when I tell them in January, 'Oh, by the way, I have to go and pick her up,' or 'I can't show up until this time because I have to go and drop my kid off at school'."

District officials were not available for comment.

The school board meets Tuesday but the issue of busing is not on the current agenda.

Parents say they are going to call into the meeting to voice their concerns.
