ST. LOUISVILLE — Busing inside the Utica village limits was a topic of discussion at Monday’s meeting of the North Fork school board.
The parent of an elementary pupil and a community member expressed concerns about the discontinuation of the pick up of students at the corner of Maple and Washington streets. The parent said there is a lack of sidewalks leading to Utica Elementary, and stated there are other safety issues involved, such as high school kids bullying the younger ones. He wondered why the district buses have room for the village pupils during the winter months but not during the spring months. The community member added that the district needs to be consistent with regard to in-town busing, and should at least give parents, baby sitters and other caregivers adequate notice when busing pick ups are changed.
