Red & White: Part II

In the wake of last night’s “bus bust” at the Red & White dance — click here to read that story — County Assemblies secretary/Westport co-chair Sheri Howie Valente emailed all parents of Westport students who attended.

She complimented the teenagers on their maturity in dealing with the bus situation. “Everyone was calm and took care of handling their own transportation back to Westport,” Sheri noted.

She added that her daughter’s group has already been issued a refund for the bus. They decided to donate the refund to Staples Tuition Grants. She suggested others do the same.

Sounds like a very sensible — and generous — solution to a situation that had nothing to do with kids and their parents. And everything to do with bus and limo companies that should have known a lot better.
