Dear Tiger Families,
Today at approximately 2:45pm there was a minor bus accident that involved one of our school buses backing into a utility
pole while carrying 14 students. The accident was swiftly reported to the transportation dispatcher and the District’s bus
accident protocol was immediately enacted with school administration and medical personnel being dispatched to the scene.
The students and driver were evaluated at the scene and transported back to the Intermediate School by a replacement bus
and replacement driver. After arriving at the Intermediate School the parents and guardians of all students (that had not
already been contacted directly by their children) were contacted to arrange for student pick up.
The safety and well-being of our students is always our first priority. My sincerest thanks to all that responded to the scene
today to evaluate and reassure our students. Additionally, thank you to all the parents and guardians for your cooperation
while we responded to this situation. I apologize for any inconvenience that this accident may have caused you or your
Daniel A. Ward
