Dozens of parents are scrambling this morning as a school bus driver shortage is leaving dozens of kids who attend Nassau BOCES without a ride to school.
According to a spokesperson for Nassau BOCES, eight bus routes to Nassau BOCES schools have been affected. News 12 has learned Nassau BOCES works with First Student, a bus company that is dealing with a driver shortage.
Parents had to get their kids to class on their own this week, but reports say the schools are now offering online school options until the situation is resolved.
The schools affected include Seaman Neck Middle School in Seaford, Robert Williams School in Jericho, Willet Avenue School in Hicksville, Rosemary Kennedy School in Wantagh, and Center for Community Adjustment in Wantagh.
