Meeting Called to Address Williams Delight School Bus Service Suspension

Oct. 29, 2008 — A public meeting will be held Thursday between school district officials and parents and guardians of the Williams Delight area to discuss an emergency cancellation of bus service in the area following an incident Monday in which school buses were reportedly pelted by rocks and eggs.
The meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the St. Croix Educational Complex Auditorium, according to St. Croix District Superintendent of Schools Gary Molloy. Representatives of the Department of Education, the Virgin Islands Police Department’s School Security Unit, the Parent Teacher Associations of the affected schools, and Abramson Enterprises, the company contracted to provide bus service to the schools.
Molloy made the decision to cancel bus service to Williams Delight after an emergency meeting Monday. The decision was made in the wake of a “major incident” in which students and non-students reportedly threw eggs and rocks at a school bus as it traveled through the neighborhood.
The decision leaves parents in the neighborhood scrambling to find alternative transportation to get their children to school. The affected schools are Educational Complex High School, St. Croix Career Technical and Educational Center (or Vocational High School) St. Croix Central High School, Arthur A. Richards Junior High School, and the Evelyn Williams Elementary School.
“It is very important, crucial even, that parents come out to this meeting so that we can work toward solutions to the current issues and determine when the bus service can be returned to the area,” Molloy said. “Safety for all is the number one priority here.”
