Bus Accident
Monday morning (9-12-2016) during the A bus run there was an accident on the purple bus. The bus was loading students when the car stopped behind the bus was rear-ended and went into the bus.

All children are fine and came to school. They needed to wait at the crash site until checked out until they could return. The assistant principal and Mrs. Biggie were there to support them at the scene. All parents of the students on the purple bus were called after the children arrived. Anxiety is a normal reaction to this type of event.
