REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio — Some Reynoldsburg parents are calling for change after they got a call early Wednesday morning.

“Six o’clock in the morning,” Shelby Addy said.

“5:51 a.m.,” Erica Lane said.

Addy and Lane both have two children in the school system. On the other end of the phone was the Reynoldsburg City Schools district telling them their children’s buses were canceled and that they would be responsible for transportation to and from school.

“It was a rush to get everything together,” Addy said. “I got to go pick up other kids [and] get my kids ready.”

The district says 18 routes were canceled, Wednesday, because of several early morning bus driver call-offs. So far this month, RCS says 120 routes had to be canceled because of staffing. It’s a struggle for students and parents.

“Not everyone has that flexibility to be able to make that accommodation,” Lane said. “[Parents are] missing work just to take their kids to school.”
