PLAINS TOWNSHIP — A school bus with students on board slipped off the road in Luzerne County Tuesday morning.

It happened on East Saylor Avenue in Plains Township around 7 a.m.

Officials say children had to get off the Pace Transportation bus for about a half hour while crews moved it back on the road.  

No one on the bus was hurt.

    Agreed! I heard our district – Benton Area Schools – also had a bus go off the road. Parents were also sliding all over Benton trying to get their kids to school. I know of one parent who had to call another parent with a truck to come rescue them. Of course Benton’s school board is known for its poor decision making.

    Regarding the bus crashes today that were blamed on “the weather”. The blame is not the weather…which was predicted over a week ago…the blame for these crashes is on the school district’s poor decision making…their main concern is not the student’s safety…it is bringing the students in for a couple hrs. in order to gain credit for a school day and not having to use a “snow day” . Guess what…it is a “snow day”. Shame on them.
