School Bus Late, Sometimes Doesn't Show Up

Some parents in Pitt County say their kids aren't getting to school on time because the buses aren't showing up on time, or in some cases, not at all. The parents say the buses serving Wintergreen Elementary and Hope Middle Schools are missing some students and delivering others late to class.

Mary Poteat has children at Hope and Wintergreen, and says the bus has shown up as much as 30 minutes late, well after a neighborhood parent already took the kids to school. Pitt County School Officials say they’re working on the problem and hope to add another bus for Hope Middle School students beginning Monday.
