Bus driver with Alpine School District on leave after reportedly threatening students
ALPINE, Utah — A bus driver is on administrative leave after reportedly making inappropriate comments to students riding her bus on Friday, according to Rex Brimhall, Director of Transportation for the Alpine School District.
While neither the district or Saratoga Police have provided more information about the incident, a parent provided a video to media outlets that he said was taken on the bus in question.
In the video, the bus driver is heard on an overhead speaker saying, “if one more person says ‘where are we going’ I’m going to shoot them.
“Now listen, I missed the stop. I’m trying to turn around. Do you understand? Okay, sit down and be quiet,” the bus driver continued.
In a letter addressed to Dry Creek Elementary school parents, Brimhall said the school district has taken immediate action to make sure students were safe.
Brimhall also said that a full investigation is underway.
