** Thank you to our local EMTs, Police Officers, WCS staff, parents, and especially our 8th grade students for their response and care after our bus accident this morning. Everyone stayed calm, helped each other, and allowed EMTs and officers to do their jobs. WCS administrator's on site were tremendously impressed by the maturity shown by our 8th graders and accompanying teachers in a difficult situation. We are thankful that there were no major injuries.

***** UPDATE: All students involved in the bus accident that have not been picked up by parents are now returning to the Middle School. 8th graders on this trip who were NOT involved in the bus accident will finish their field trip at Laurel Oaks. ***

We had a minor bus accident between 2 buses on the way out to Laurel Oaks for an 8th grade field trip today (Thursday 10/19). There are NO major injuries. EMT, police, and WCS administrators are at the scene. Minor injuries are being assessed and treated by EMTs. Parents of any injured students are being contacted. If parents of students on this field trip wish to pick up their child they may do so at Laurel Oaks. You must enter from SR 73. Students who are not picked up will be transported back to WMS once it is safe to do so.
