Parents in Moravia didn’t get many answers at a school board meeting after a 10-year-old was accused of bringing a knife on to a school bus and threatening to stab another student.
Parents we spoke with were upset that the district did not notify them of the incident. The school is required to notify parents when something like this happens, but the school board says that rule isn’t very clear.
Board members plan to talk about different ways of handling a situation like this.
“In the future we may have some future consideration on how notifications might be handled to parents that would be directly involved,” Moravia School Board member Chris Spencer said. “That will be something for future discussions for the board.”
We are not releasing the name of the 10-year-old because of his age. No word whether he has been disciplined by the school.
