DELLWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - This morning NewsChannel 5wanted to give you the perspective of a family dealing with transferring from Riverview to Mehlville on the first day of school.

NewsChannel 5's Steve Patterson walked along with two kids, 12-year-old Ahmon and 7-year-old Ahmiya, as they made their way to the bus stop.

Each day they'll have to walk about a mile and a half from their home in Dellwood to the closest busing site at Moline Elementary. Which includes a wakeup call of about 5:45 a.m. and crossing the busy Chambers Road, all without adult supervision.

Their mother, Shammara, says she wants her kids to have the best education even if it means a daily journey.
