Mom: Boy exposed self to girl on school bus

RURAL VALLEY — A western Pennsylvania mother says a local school district has removed a 9-year-old boy from a school bus, but only after she twice complained that the boy exposed himself to her daughter.

KDKA-TV says Armstrong County School District officials wouldn’t comment on the incidents, the most recent of which happened Tuesday on a bus to Shannock Valley Elementary School. That’s about 40 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The school’s principal has not immediately responded to an email requesting comment from The Associated Press.

The woman says in a KDKA report that she complained when it first happened about two weeks ago but school officials just “hush-hushed about it.”

After the station called the school district for comment, the woman says she got a call telling her the boy had been removed from the bus.
