Q: Why is it that January and Erie County Head Start still has no transportation for students? The busing is a HUGE part of the program considering it is for low-income families. And the parents have not been kept up on the situation. They keep being told it is in progress. Now there is a rumor that the head of the transportation "retired' over winter break. Can you please help get to the bottom of this huge dilemma? - Ronda From Hayes Ave
