"Going by Easy Coach (which they us to travel home), all buses were fully booked by other schools prior to this.

They decided to let the students travel at night.

Some parents were OK with it but my I was worried why they were not giving us parents who did not want our kids to travel at night an option.

This is something that has never happened before, either during midterm or during closing time."
