No laughing matter

MEDFIELD

School buses in Medfield were at the mercy of suspected student pranksters last week after the batteries were removed from most of the vehicles, causing delays for students on the second day of school.

Police, public works and school workers were able to gather all the batteries and reinstall them in less than in hour. However, buses to both the high school and the middle school were delayed.

No vandals have been identified, and school officials have not decided whether they will press charges if someone is implicated.

"I think we'll cross that bridge when we come to it," said Robert Maguire, superintendent of schools.
