Letter: A serious failing by the schools

My 5-year-old daughter started kindergarten at Moorhead Probstfield on Sept. 4. We went to back-to-school night and changed her transportation from being bused home to being bused to Reinertson Elementary. From there the Y would pick her up for after-school care. We have confirmation of this.

We received a call from the Y that she was not brought to Reinertson Elementary. When I inquired with the school, they told me that she was sent home on the bus instead. When we inquired with the transportation department, we were told that our information was not updated.

So the school sent my 5-year-old child home to a house where nobody was home and she had no way of getting inside. We did not receive an apology or an inquiry on if our child was OK from the transportation department or the school.
