Today, we had our third over the road tire fail within the past week. This is unexpectable. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that our students travel safe to and from activities. I understand how frustrating this is for the students, parents, drivers, the administration and transportation department.
Prior to leaving, the cruiser tires are visually inspected and the tire pressure is checked. We also had our tire man from Glasgow check all of our tires this past week. No problems were noted.
This week, I will have our transportation director have all of the tires inspected again. We will try to figure out if we need to change suppliers, change procedures, or if we have just had a run of bad tires. I'm sorry for any inconvience that these issues have caused our families.
