    The school official you spoke with was very untruthful the parents were not notified and i know this for a fact because two of the children on the bus were mine and one of them were transported to the hospital via ambulance. Had it not been for a very dear friend i would not have known.Very sad! The driver of the van should have been arrested due to the extent of the injuries that were obtained by several passengers these kids are in grades K-4 and are mentally distraught over this incident. Who will help relieve our children’s fear of buses now?
