Wattsburg increases safety for bus riders

Local News

Some bus route changes will be implemented in the Wattsburg Area School District.  This past February, a car hit and killed 11 year old Noah Wion as he exited his school bus to cross the street to his home.  

Since the accident, Wattsburg Area School Officials have looked at all bus routes and collected input from community members and parents.  School Superintendent, Ken Berlin, says after the accident, they did alter some stops to improve safety for the students.  

Berlin says school officials will be meeting with the student body at the beginning of the school year to discuss bus safety.
