Northside K-8 Families, This is Principal Michelle Dunbar. I want to share information with you about an incident involving one of our school buses this morning. I have received District approval to release this message now. Around 7:55 a.m., Bus 272 was involved in an accident with another vehicle on US-1 and US-158. The initial investigation into the accident shows the other vehicle turned into the path of the oncoming school bus. First responders, emergency medical personnel, local law enforcement, and Warren County Schools transportation administrators all quickly responded to the scene of the accident. Assistant Principal Richardson and I also went out to the scene to check on students, provide support, and make sure they saw familiar faces from the school. Students were evaluated by EMS at the scene. One student was taken to the hospital for further evaluation. The remaining students were taken to school on a different bus. Law enforcement is investigating the accident. Since the accident, we’ve been checking on our students involved in the accident, making sure they’re all okay, and personally contacting their families to let them know what happened. Knowing that we’re all one Northside family, I also wanted to let you know, and make sure you heard it directly from me with accurate information. I appreciate the quick, professional, and comforting response from our first responders this morning who helped our students. I also want to commend our students for how they handled themselves in a stressful situation. And lastly, I want to thank all of you for your understanding and continued support of Northside K-8 School. Replacement Bus 113

Northside K-8 Bulldog Families: Please ask your child for the very important letter that was sent to you on behalf of Superintendent Sutton. The letter was to inform you of the newly established partnership between Warren County Schools and WeCare COVID-19 weekly testing. Please complete and return the form giving your child permission to be tested weekly. According to Superintendent Sutton "The WeCare testing service is provided at no cost to Warren County Schools. The federal government will cover the cost for anyone who doesn't have insurance. The weekly WeCare testing will help identify students and staff who have COVID-19, but don't know it because they don't have any symptoms. This will allow you to better protect your family and friends, by knowing if your child has COVID-19." This is just one of the ways we're doing everything we can to keep our schools open for students to attend in-person. " Testing will occur starting Monday, September 13, 2021 for those families and staff members who have completed and returned the consent form.
