VICTOR, N.Y. (WROC) — A group of Victor Central School District parents say their kids were kept from exiting a school bus about 20-30 feet from their posted bus stop Tuesday.
Video sent to News 8 from a parent at the scene appears to show the parents screaming to let their kids off the bus, while kids were tapping on the glass and crying.
An officer who was in the neighborhood on another call came over and tried diffusing the situation, as seen in the video above.
State Police told News 8 tonight that they did indeed respond and defused the situation, and that marked the end of police involvement.
The students were eventually left off the bus.
Parents say they were told they’d each get a call from the school district Wednesday.
