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.

Martin Library strives to have a vibrant role in the development of a culture that promotes motivated readers and learners for life by providing the students a place for collaborative learning, creativity and for developing informational literacy skills.  Thus, the main purpose of the After School Program is to enrich our students academically, physically and emotionally in a safe environment.  Throughout the 2016-2017 school year, the After School Program provided services to more than 1,100 students with an average daily attendance ranging from 80 to 120 students in each building.  Some of the programs the students can participate in during the enrichment period include, but are not limited to, small group tutoring and computerized tutoring, Leap Into Science, STEM programming, cultural heritage education, yoga, hip hop dance, gardening, photography, theater, creative writing, cosmetology, character education, Bricks for Kids, Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts.  The students also enjoyed many presentations from outside providers such as “The Bug Man,” Zoo America, Bob the “Critter” Guy, York Waste-Recycling, the Sheriff’s Department and the York City Fire Department.
