According to a press release from the school, no injuries were immediately reported in a minor bus accident at approximately 2:45 this afternoon (Monday, April 9, 2018) when one bus backed into another bus at the Sixth Grade Center in Waynesville.

The accident occurred when Bus Route 31 backed into Bus Route 27. Students from 6th -12th grades were on both buses.

As a precautionary measure, the students were examined by the school nurse. As a result, the two secondary bus routes will be delayed, as well as a transfer route. It is estimated that Route 31 could be delayed about 20 minutes and Route 27 could be delayed by about 35 minutes. Route 30, which transfers students from those routes, will be delayed as result as well.

The district apologizes for the inconvenience.

Parents of those students on the bus at the time of the incident will be called.
