16 kids crossed this morning – that’s double the average! And 10 of them showed up within 10 minutes before daybreak. Factor in the extremely dense fog we had and you can imagine just how dangerous it was.
Some of the reasons I’ve found that the non-regulars show up include having missed the bus, having been suspended from the bus and quite a few of them usually show up earlier than when I arrive at 7:10.
So, while the average during my one hour will probably stick at around 8, the total average is closer to 16 when you factor in the early risers. Total kids is up to about 20.
