Police say they responded to the Bentley School Wednesday morning after a disturbance that began at a bus-stop on Congress Street.
At 7:18 a.m., three officers responded to the school and spoke with a crossing guard who said a man had been "in front of the school yelling at a bus driver."
Police said they spoke to the man, "who was extremely agitated and vocal." Police said "he was told numerous times to calm down and finally did so on threat of arrest."
Officers said they then made contact with other adults in the situation, including the principal.
Two children were not picked up by their designated bus that morning, according to police, because the bus was at capacity. Police said when the adults were "asked to await another bus, a scene was caused. The bus driver drove away to the school," and the adults followed to transport the students and "voice their concerns over this and ongoing issues" to the principal.
Police said the parents "were strongly counseled that there are proper avenues to voice their concerns or complaints and they were forwarded to the superintendent." The parents were told "the manner in which they attempted to voice their complaints was not appropriate and would not be tolerated in a school environment," police said.
