First day of school

I heard several stories about the usual chaos involved with the first day of school. Feel free to share yours. 🙂 I heard there was a lot of excitement and a lot of confusion at the new Carrie Busey (will have to find out more in just a few moments).


In other news, found this on the MTD site:


And then a sobering and frightening reminder to be on the look out for bad guys (dated yesterday – Aug 21):

In the last week, several area towns have reported incidents involving attempts by strangers to lure younger children to vehicles.  Today, two midday incidents were reported west of Lincoln School in Monticello in which a female and male adult driving a red pickup truck with a topper ask younger children to approach their vehicle for assistance in finding a lost dog.  The children ran from the vehicle and reported the incident to a nearby adult who called the school and police.  The vehicle was not found.  I have reviewed the situation with the Monticello Police department.  Please discuss these types of incidents with your children and tell them to call 911 in an emergency.  The safety of our children is our number one concern.

    From MTD web site “Families with students at Champaign Unit 4 Schools middle and high schools are contacting MTD regarding bus information cards they received in the mail for their transport to school. MTD did not produce these cards. They were sent on behalf of the School District. MTD is happy to answer questions, but wanted to clarify the information source. Service for Champaign middle and high school students is unchanged from last year. Detailed information about school service is available on the Maps and Schedules page under the heading “School Route Maps & Schedules.”

    Was this part of the conversation at Shadowwood?

    I don’t think so – I got the impression this was something totally independent; probably high school parents calling MTD because MTD handles so much of the busing.
