On the afternoon of October 29, 2021, there was an accident involving PSB Bus #49, which serves students in the Bluefield Family of Schools. All students onboard the bus were from either Westwood Primary or Eliot River Elementary.
EMS, police and firefighters were onsite and assessed students. One student has been transported to hospital with minor injuries. All other students on Bus #49 were transported to East Wiltshire Intermediate School for pick up by parents/guardians.
Buses serving the Bluefield Family of Schools are expected to be running late.
Student Services will be onsite at the school next week to talk through any concerns that students may have.
*UPDATE: Schools will be reaching out to the parents of any child involved in today’s accident. The following resource also provides information on how you can best support your child at this time: https://childmind.org/guide/helping-children-cope-after-a-traumatic-event/.
