We now know the fate of the four students who verbally harassed the school bus monitor, Karen Klein in Greece, New York last week.
School officials announced yesterday that the boys are suspended from their school and regular bus transportation for a year. They will be attending an alternative educational program and will be participating in a bullying prevention program. They are also required to complete 50 hours of community service with seniors.
