Sarah Trafton reports in Columbia-Greene Media that a 14-year-old Greenville High School student faces a probation hearing after allegedly threatening other students on a school bus Oct. 8. “As he reached their seating when getting on at the high school in the afternoon, he stated, ‘I am going to kill all of you little kids one day,’” said Aimee Richards, the mother of a ten-year-old student who was on the bus. She kept her child out of school the next day because of the incident, and is complaining about the situation. Greenville students from kindergarten to 12th grade share the same buses, largely without monitors. “We can’t have a full-time mental health counselor from Greene County but we can repave the elementary school parking lot, get a new track and put in a new playground,” Richards said. ”We have a planning team for students with high intelligence. Why not have a planning team for bullying or children with mental health issues?” Greenville School District Superintendent Tammy J. Sutherland said, "Members of the administrative team called the reporting families as soon as they were made aware of the concerns. The district leadership team worked with our School Resource Officer and other representatives from the Greene County Sheriff’s Office to make certain that the investigation was initiated as quickly and thoroughly as possible."
