Lindbergh school board asks state legislators for support with bus safety

The Lindbergh Board of Education recently adopted a resolution asking Missouri legislators to introduce legislation making it a felony to attack a school bus, its driver or passengers.

Board members adopted the resolution March 14 in response to the unprovoked attack on March 1 on a Durham Bus that was transporting students from Lindbergh to their homes in St. Louis city.

The resolution states that the board “believes that the safety of students is paramount — that students should feel safe not only while they are at school but while being transported to and from school.”

The Board of Education is asking legislators to make it a felony to “attack, impede or board any school bus with the intent to do harm to its occupants or do damage to the bus.”
