Details about response to accident involving district school bus

This morning, a bus transporting students from William Penn Senior High School to the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy was involved in an accident. Six students were transported to the hospital for assessment of possible injuries. As of 3 p.m., each of the students had been treated and released from the hospital. The driver of the school bus was also transported to the hospital. All other students on the bus were evaluated by school nurses.

The school district contacted parents of the affected students and will report more information to the public when it is available. The safety and well-being of our students is always our top priority. We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we continue to investigate.

Devers students earn a milkshake-making Friday

Posted on October 2nd, 2017

On Friday, Sept. 15, the Devers 4-6 grade Emotional Support class earned the opportunity to learn how to make vanilla milkshakes!

One of the building long-term substitute teachers, Joy Baublitz, and teacher assistant, Amy Bermudez, guided their students through the activity. The students learned about the components of the blender and how ice cream, milk, and whipped cream are all dairy products.

The students enjoyed making the milkshakes and found it amusing to be warned to keep their hands on the blender lid so it wouldn’t explode!

Devers Principal Craig Linn, was treated with a handmade shake while listening to all the academic progress the students made this week. It was a rewarding activity that also coincided with one of the warmest days this week!
