“A bus that literally tumbled down a 50-foot ravine within minutes. It’s extraordinary,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “While it’s preliminary, it’s likely that a faulty front tire contributed to the accident. Although, again, this is still under investigation. That’s a preliminary determination.”
“Profoundly saddened by the passing of my colleague Gina Pellettiere, a truly wonderful teacher and musician whose legacy will cast long shadows – her smile and energy will be missed deeply and by my former colleague and department brethren.”
“Bea Ferrari. Bea retired from high school long ago but was still a community stalwart and patron of our beloved music program. Her sweet soul was well-known and called home to her maker, far too suddenly for any of us to understand.”
