Gomez Calls for Mandatory Meeting on Student School Bus Conduct

Parents and guardians of students at Joseph Gomez Elementary School are asked to attend a mandatory meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, to discuss student conduct on school buses.
“Recently we have been inundated with complaints of disrespect toward drivers, disorderly conduct and disregard for school bus procedures and guidelines by many of our students who ride the school bus to and from the Bovoni and Thomasville Housing Communities,” Gomez Principal Freida Farrow explained Monday.
Farrow added that she is asking for parents’ help in talking to students about the need to respect others, and the importance of helping to maintain a safe environment on the bus by exhibiting proper behavior.
Thursday’s meeting will be held in the school cafeteria and is mandatory for the parents of all students riding the buses from Bovoni and Thomasville.
“Please note that if you do not attend this meeting, your child/children will not be able to ride the bus beginning Friday, March 23,” Farrow said.
