Parents with kids on the bus were able to pick them up at the site after the students were examined for injuries. Superintendent Dr. Andre D. Spencer said students who were aboard were excused from classes the rest of the day to fully recover from the impact.

The district wrote in a Tuesday statement: “Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved in the accident, especially our scholars and bus driver.”
