Picture of track team bus ride raises red flag for parents

Posted: Updated:
CLIO, MI (WNEM) -

The Clio Boys and Girls Track and Field team had a big meet in Holly on Wednesday night.  The bus trip took about 45 minutes.  But it wasn't the trip that was the problem. It was the number of students riding on the bus.  And when parent Betty Davis saw a picture of the bus ride after Wednesday's meet, she wasn't happy.

"Those kids were, they were all over the place. It was just unsafe, as many as they had on there, it was just unsafe," said Davis.

Davis said close to 90 students were crammed onto one bus.

"There was a coach that was standing up, stood up the entire time," said Davis.

It's a picture many Clio parents say is concerning.

"Why would we do that, it just looks so unsafe. What if they had an accident," said Clio parent Deanna Mills.

"The first thing that went through my mind is I cannot believe the bus left the grounds," said Davis.

We took our tough questions to Clio Superintendent Dr. James Tenbusch.  He declined an on-camera interview, but told TV5 he received several calls about the incident on Thursday and he's investigating exactly what happened.  He said in direct response to the issue, he sent a memo to bus drivers on Thursday saying they cannot leave with more than 71 students on board.
