While some moms and dads wish for a bus to safely take their sons and daughters to school, other parents worry about their children taking the bus.
"There are so many kids on this bus and like I told him if you go get in a wreck - what's going to happen?" said Jody Torres, mom of three bus riders.
Torres has three young children who board school bus # 243 each day.
"I'm concerned about my kids, for the safety of now just my kids, for the safety of other kids out there," said Torres.
Caddo school officials tell NBC 6 the bus driver reports 60 students riding # 243 which is 6 under the limit.
Brenda Mitchell says her first grade son shares a seat with at least two other children.
"My concern is they're going to get in a wreck and my son will be in the aisle and if they wreck he's going to go flying," said Mitchell.
The ages of children on the bus range from kindergarten to sixth grade.
"I've seen them pushing, screaming, he's been pushed down, witnessed fights on the bus - it's horrible," said Mitchell.
Chelcy Burchfield is one of those older students. She tries to keep an eye out for her own younger siblings.
"He tries to make sure all the little kids are in the front, but I make sure my little brother is back there with me," said Burchfield.
District spokesperson, Victor Mainiero, has been dealing with transportation issues all week. On this particular situation, he says there's been no complaints filed about the overcrowding.
Torres says she called and left messages, but nothing has been done.
"I hope to see they bring another bus out here," said Torres.
If you have concerns about the bus you're child rides to school, Caddo Parish school officials ask that you call the transportation department to report them. The number you can call is (318) 603-6535.
