In a press release, Francis added, "Please make sure transportation is available for you minor child. If no one is there to transport the child home they may be held at the New Drive Inn until the parent or guardian arrives to take the minor child home. Emergency transportation will be provided by the staff of the Weed and Seed Office. However, please pick up your child as early as possible to avoid problems that may arise."
