Justice has been served in the case of that group of students in New York who bullied a bus monitor earlier this month.
All four of the middle school students have been suspended – for a full year!
School officials say they’ll also need to complete 50 hours of community service work.
The incident took place in Greece, New York, and was captured on a cell phone video that went viral earlier this month.
“Following individual meetings this week with school and district administrators, each family waived their right to a hearing and agreed to one-year suspensions from school and regular bus transportation,” the Greece Central School District said in a prepared statement.
The students will be transferred to the district Reengagement Center. Each of the four will need to complete 50 hours of community service with senior citizens and participate in a bullying prevention p
The bus monitor in question, 68-year-old Karen Klein, discussed the incident – which reduced her to tears at the time- with CNN’s Anderson Cooper earlier this month.
