One of Lone Pine's long time dedicated bus drivers, Ms. Ruth, passed away unexpectedly last weekend. Ruth Clement was a driver for Lone Pine for over ten years, doing the Wabeek run year after year. More recently she was driving Bus L, as her goal was to ease into retirement. Ruth was the first and last face of our district that many of our students saw each day. She was warm, funny, and caring, and knew her riders and their families often as well as their teachers did. She will be dearly missed! If you or your children would like to send a card or a note of rememberance to Ruth's family, please send it in to the Lone Pine office no later than Friday morning, October 24th. Donations may also be made in her honor to the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL), at 790 Featherstone, Pontiac MI 48342.
