The arrest stems from an alleged incident on a Naples Central School bus involving students.
A Naples Central School bus driver was charged Tuesday with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child after she allegedly gave a beverage to a 15-year-old student to take pills. The driver also allegedly allowed students to use tobacco products while on her bus.
Robin Mary Tokarz, 51, of 8600 Route 21, Lot No. 27, Naples, was charged with the misdemeanor at the school shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday.
According to the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, “the arrest stems from an incident” on a Naples school bus on Oct. 26. The bus was en route to the town of Seneca, according to deputies, and during the ride Tokarz allegedly provided a 15-year-old student with a beverage to ingest unknown pills, and allegedly let students use tobacco.
School district Superintendent Brenda Keith said Wednesday that Tokarz “is not currently driving.”
“The school is continuing with an internal investigation,” added Keith, who wouldn’t comment further on the matter.
Tokarz was issued an appearance ticket and is to appear in Seneca town court at a later date.
