Schools officials hope to explore privately owned parcels as they look for a site to park school buses. “We’ve been struggling over the last few months to find an appropriate spot to park the buses once their current location is no longer usable because of the River’s Edge project,” Superintendent Paul Stein said.

Stein said the district expects it will have to stop parking buses there in about a year.
