Eleven students were on the bus at the time of the accident. All students were checked by emergency personnel and cleared to go home. Students were transported home by parents or the secondary bus that was sent to the location. The only injuries that we are aware of at this time were those of the bus driver. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. “
