ALIAMANU MILITARY RESERVATION — Children who have been riding the bus to and from Red Hill Elementary School, here, will no longer receive that service beginning Aug. 1.
U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii’s financial situation requires that the bus service be cancelled at the end of this school year.
A letter signed by Col. Douglas Mulbury, commander, USAG-HI, will be distributed through Island Palm Communities to affected residents, notifying them of the change.
AMR residents living in Red Hill Makai, Hibiscus and Valley View areas will be expected to transport their children to school or make other transportation arrangements.
One option would be to use the AMR School Age Services’ Before and After School Program, which not only provides transportation to and from Red Hill Elementary School, but also provides care before and after school, on school holidays and during other no-school days.
Another alternative would be to partner with neighbors whose children also attend the school, to coordinate a carpool program.
Parents are reminded that USAG-HI Policy Memorandum No. 34, the Child Supervision Policy for Army Installations in Hawaii, states that children less than 10 years old cannot walk to and from school alone.
Parents are encouraged to take advantage of current transportation options available and to create a responsible plan for their children to get to and from school safely.
