Written by

POLAND - Classes were canceled in Regional School Unit 16, which comprises the towns of Poland, Mechanic Falls and Minot, Wedmesday morning after the district's entire bus fleet was vandalized, according to the Portland Press Herald.

School officials said in a Facebook post that tires were slashed on all of the Poland buses and trucks. They said mechanics will have the buses repaired and ready for school on Thursday.


Officials hope the security system will provide evidence leading to an arrest in the crime and that they plan to work with the state to see if a waiver is an option for make up days.
