GLCPS Bus Involved in Crash

One of our buses was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Monday, May 13 while the students were being transported to GLCPS. While none of the students sustained serious injury, the bus driver was being evaluated for possible injuries caused by the crash.

As soon as we were told by Tremblay's Bus Company about the accident, we began notifying the families of the students and instructing them to pick up their child from the hospital. School personnel went to the hospital and stayed until all of the children were evaluated and released to their families. 

Our first priority has always been to keep students safe. Our second priority is to communicate quickly and clearly with families, especially in situations such as this so that they are fully informed as to what has occurred.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
