West Genesee school district seeking restraining order following bus incident

The restraining order would keep the individual away from school buses, property, students, and all events related to the District (MGN Online).

The Interim Superintendent of the West Genesee School District has released a follow-up letter regarding Thursday morning’s bus incident.

In the letter, Michael Schiedo, the interim superintendent, said that the school district “immediately began investigating” and that “appropriate disciplinary action will be taken, if warranted.”

Schiedo also said that the district is working closely with law enforcement to seek a restraining order against the 21 year-old that would keep the individual away from school buses, property, students, and all events related to the district.

You can read the entire letter below:

Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have received many inquiries and concerns over yesterday’s bus incident. It is inexcusable that a 21 year old was allowed onto a middle school bus. While we acknowledge that this was unsettling for many of the students, the individual who boarded the bus was cooperative and responsive at all times when directed by the bus driver. Upon arrival at the middle school, he was also very cooperative with the principal and the Camillus Police.
I would like to reassure you that we immediately began investigating, on all levels, how this possibly could have happened. This investigation is ongoing. It is a confidential personnel matter, but appropriate disciplinary action will be taken, if warranted.
Local law enforcement is working closely with us, and we are seeking a restraining order to keep this individual away from school buses, property, students, and all events related to the District.
We have learned a great deal from this incident. As a result, protocols and procedures are going to be enhanced and training will occur to prevent any additional situations like this from happening in the future.
Respectfully,
Michael Schiedo
Interim Superintendent of Schools
West Genesee Central School District

The Camillus Police Chief said they are not ID'ing the man as they are still considering this a mental health matter.

They also have not filed any criminal charges, but said that the statute of limitations on a misdemeanor is one year so they have "plenty of time" if they do decide to.
