Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

It's smooth sailing to south Tampa schools



With less-than-expected out-of-town traffic at the Republican National Convention, there's been no problem getting kids to and from the south Tampa schools, officials report.

Security officers continue to ride buses to and from Harbor Island, as they did last week. At Gorrie Elementary, Wilson Middle and Plant High School kids have gotten to school and arrived at home on schedule.

Well, most of the time.

A replacement bus was late Wednesday morning leaving Plant to pick up Wilson students. The problem had nothing to do with the convention; the driver was having difficulty operating the bus. ParentLink calls went out and the kids arrived just 15 minutes past the start of class.

If you haven't done so already, parents at these three schools are advised to follow them on Twitter. Or consult the district's RNC web page.
