Additional Information (Posted on January 9, 2010)
During the afternoon run on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 one of our school busses slid slightly on an ice-covered road while approaching a scheduled bus stop that is in an apartment area where there are many parked cars. The bus made contact with a parked car which resulted in no damage to the bus and minor damage to the parked car.
Concurrent to District staff responding to the scene, it is our understanding that a concerned citizen called in the minor accident to 911. Following the arrival of emergency responders, their parked vehicle slid and made contact with the parked bus.
Following a medical check and clearance of all students, the children were transferred to a second bus or released to parents who are residents of the apartment complex where the incident occurred.
We are relieved that there were no injuries and very thankful to the driver of the bus, the District transportation staff, and all emergency responders for their continued partnership and utmost care for our children.
