A Mighty Roar Ignites Broadway

  • There is a citywide shortage of bus drivers. There were no DOE approved buses available– public transportation was our only option. Many of our kids travel in from the South Bronx… hundreds on a train at one time is a challenging proposition. By next year, this bottleneck will clear up–should we consider waiting until the fall?
  • Crime remains an issue in the city–is now really an appropriate time to bring kids on public transportation to see a show?
  • COVID counts remain high. Maybe doing it in the fall would be a better idea.
  • Most of these kids haven’t been on a class trip in years. A room full of 900 kids might not be their best first trip back. Maybe we just bring a smaller group to see a show for now.
  • We simply don’t have the time. This is graduation season and only so many school days remain. Maybe we do it in the fall when we can better plan.
  • We are all exhausted. Our schools, teachers and administrators have been through a lot this year just trying to keep the school functional. Given this is a major undertaking, maybe this would be better suited when people are in a better head space.
