From the office of Dr. Bob Hill, Superintendent of the Firelands Local School District:
I was just in communication with Mr. Spagnola regarding the eighth grade Philadelphia trip. Bus #3 was involved in a minor accident with another vehicle. NO students, faculty, or parents were injured and the bus received minor damage.
Mechanics are currently on-scene to repair the damage so that the bus can proceed with the trip. Bus #1 and bus #2 have pulled off the highway to wait for the repair of bus #3.
Once the police release bus #3, the trip will resume to Shanksville, time permitting.
Please feel free to contact the Board Office at 440-965-5821.
