The accident happened on Route 169. It was a Canterbury Public Schools bus transporting Canterbury students to Griswold High School and to another high school in the region. We notified all of Griswold Public Schools by means of our connect.ed messaging system (email, phone, and text) at about 8:00 am when we could confirm a few key details; we updated our Facebook and Twitter accounts as well. There were 19 GHS students on the bus. In addition to the all-call communication procedures, the high school administration contacted--by a personal phone call--a guardian of all 19 students. Students were assessed for injuries, and we are told that the students had only minor injuries. We are very relieved that this is the case. We shall keep all parties involved in this accident in our thoughts, and were most pleased to have collaborated with the Canterbury Public Schools to manage this difficult situation. Griswold Public Schools are deeply committed to supporting their students and families; should impacted students and families need additional support, they are strongly encouraged to reach out to the Griswold High School administration.
