Students at School, Home After Bus Incident (10/25/2016)
UPDATE: We are happy to report that all four students who went to the hospital are now home. (10/25/2016 4:00pm)
This morning one of our buses carrying elementary students was involved in an incident on SE 164th
Street, and four students were taken to the hospital—three by ambulance and one by a parent. All were discharged and home before noon
The other children were taken on a different bus to school, where the district nurse and school counselor have met with them. Staff are available to support any other students with concerns.
“We’ve contacted every parent with a student on the bus,” said principal Josh Robertson. “We’re giving the students the support that they need.”
The rear of the bus slipped into a ditch on its way to Hockinson Heights Elementary School. The incident is being investigated.
Please be assured that we will do everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our children.
