Students Who Bullied Bus Monitor Suspended For 1 Year

The four middle school students who relentlessly tormented and bullied 68-yar-old bus aide Karen Klein have been suspended from school for one year. In the video which have gone viral, the boys made fun of Karen's weight and looks — calling her “fat” and saying she looks “like a troll” — and threatened to egg her house. In a statement this afternoon, Greece Central School District Superintendent Barbara Deane-Williams said the boys will attend classes at a Reengagement Center -- an "alternative education program keeps middle school students on track academically while providing a structured opportunity for students to take responsibility for their actions." The boys must also complete 50 hours of community service with senior citizens and will complete a formal program in bullying prevention, respect and responsibility. If at 30 weeks the boys 30 weeks have completed the conditions of their discipline and are in good standing at the Reengagement Center, they can apply for early readmission to Athena Middle School.
