Superintendent of Schools for Windsor Dr. Jason Andrews says, “Those high surface, high touch surface areas like hand rails, seats etc will be sanitized in each run. At the end of the day our buses will be cleaned, we purchased disinfecting misting equipment so that the entire interior will be sanitized.”center_img Cleaning the buses in between routes will become a critical part of schools cleaning plans.

Cruiser resolution passes despite drivers’ protest

first_imgMore than 25 Campus Cruiser employees, all anxious to hear the result of a resolution that would recommend extending Cruiser hours, were present at the Undergraduate Student Senate meeting Tuesday.Cruising · Campus Cruiser drivers listen to the debate at Tuesday’s Senate meeting as senators discuss the resolution to extend Cruiser’s hours. About 25 drivers attended. – Scott Fairbanks | Daily Trojan Though the resolution ultimately passed by a vote of 7-2, USG senators debated the resolution for almost an hour before voting.Some of the key issues discussed included student interest in extended hours and the strain that could be placed on Cruiser’s resources and student drivers if service was extended.Currently, Campus Cruiser runs until 2:45 a.m. on the University Park Campus. The resolution recommends extending the hours until 3:45 a.m. and includes recommendations to administrators to provide more cars and money to Campus Cruiser.Director of Campus Affairs Helen Moser and Residential Senator Wilson Kyi said there was an overwhelming student interest in increasing the hours of Campus Cruiser and that they felt it was their responsibility to advocate for students.Campus Cruiser Supervisor Kevin Aguirre said at the Senate meeting that he thinks one of the main problems is student attitudes toward Cruiser and misinformation about how the process works.“People call in and they feel like we should pick them up immediately,” Aguirre said. “I think the needs are being addressed in the wrong way.”Campus Cruiser employees said their biggest issue with the resolution is the late hours the employees have to work and the safety of the employees themselves.“Students are spoiled,” Julius Cotton, a junior majoring in business administration and a Campus Cruiser employee, said at the meeting. “They go out and party without knowing how to get home.”Extending hours would also require Cruiser to hire more employees and acquire more vehicles.Kyi said he does not wish to force drivers to do something they do not want to and hopes to represent the interests of all students, including Cruiser drivers.“The point of the resolution is to let the administration know,” Kyi said. “We want to see everyone’s reaction. Now that we know that Campus Cruiser doesn’t like it, we’ll be sure to let the administration know as well.”Moser said if the hours are expanded to 3:45 a.m. USG will recommend the university consider professional drivers if students are unwilling to drive at that time.Greek Senator Dylan Dann noted that students seemed to be looking for taxi-like services, not necessarily Campus Cruiser, and he thought the resolution should have been aimed at USC Transportation as a whole, not just Cruiser. Dann voted against the resolution.Moser and Kyi said they have been advocating for the trams and also Yellow Cab, where students can pay with discretionary money, but the resolution focused on Cruiser because students have said they feel unsafe taking a tram or walking home.Campus Cruiser employees declined to comment after the vote. The Cruiser manager could not be reached.Moser said the next step is meeting with Campus Cruiser drivers to hear more of their concerns and understand the issue better so that they can be better represented.“We will continue lobbying for this talk with the administration,” Moser said. “They have always responded to student needs. I don’t foresee that they would take their needs out of the picture.”Kyi described the current resolution as general, but he and Moser hope to make it more specific in the upcoming weeks before they pass it off to the administration.last_img read more

Syracuse’s woes from free-throw line continue against Colgate

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 16, 2013 at 11:27 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Jerami Grant said he shot 23-for-25 from the free throw line during practice on Friday.The next day, though, Grant finished 2-of-6 from the stripe.“I don’t know what happened,” he said.Grant wasn’t the exception, though. He was part of an epidemic. No. 9 Syracuse (3-0) shot just 12-of-28 from the line in its 69-50 win over Colgate (0-2). The Orange’s free throw percentage dipped to a dreadful 60.2 on the season.Saturday’s 42.9-percent performance didn’t cost SU against the Raiders, but it might down the road. The Orange hit 67.5 percent of its free throws last year and 69.8 the season before.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMichael Gbinije shot 5-of-12. DaJuan Coleman was 0-for-3. C.J. Fair missed his only free throw. The only player who converted consistently was Trevor Cooney, who made 5-of-6.Fair said it’s not something you can really pinpoint. The key is to forget the previous one and move forward. In practice, he said he always has to make 10 in a row before leaving.But all that practice didn’t translate to the game for Syracuse.“I missed my one and only free throw,” Fair said, “and that’s something I hate.”Grant acknowledged that Syracuse hasn’t shot the ball well from the line at all this year. He said he doesn’t know why SU has struggled so far, but he knows the season is still young.“It’s only been a couple games,” Grant said, “so definitely going forward, it’s going to get better.” Commentslast_img read more
