THE BRONX - Parents say a Bronx public school was not prepared to handle the amount of students returning on the first day of school today.

School staff at P.S. 46 told parents that their children may have to go a neighboring school because of the number of students in the school zone.

According to the Department of Education, when the number of students in one school zone outnumbers the space in classrooms, students are relocated to a neighboring school. P.S. 46’s neighboring school is P.S. 85, which is more than a mile away.

One parent told News 12 that school officials did not tell them about the relocation until she showed up this morning to drop off her child on the first day of school.

The DOE says it provides shuttle service for kids to go to relocated classes.
