Classes canceled in Plum over bus issues
Classes in the Plum Borough School District are expected to resume on Thursday, Superintendent Timothy Glasspool said Wednesday afternoon.
Classes were canceled on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the extreme cold temperatures. Also, twenty of the district's 54 buses would not start on Wednesday morning, Glasspool said.
“If they (buses) weren't enclosed or plugged in, they weren't starting today,” Glasspool said.
The superintendent said as of Wednesday afternoon, all the buses in the fleet are operating.
“We will have mechanics in early tomorrow,” Glasspool said. “I don't anticipate a delay or cancelation.”
The district has scheduled Feb. 17 and April 16 as the make-up days for the cancelation of classes on Tuesday and today (Jan. 8), according to the district website.
The wrestling match scheduled for 7 p.m. today (Jan. 8) at home and the boys and girls basketball games scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today are set to proceed as scheduled, Glasspool said.
