Whipple Bus Stop Incident: Thursday, March 19th

As was reported by the Canton Repository early today a Whipple Heights student was “struck by a vehicle shortly before 9am” prior to the school bus arriving to its scheduled stop. The student is currently being treated and all indications are that injuries were minor.

Please take this opportunity to talk with your child about bus stop safety and stress the importance of staying within the designated area while waiting for the buses arrival. If possible, we ask that parents wait with their child at the bus stop until students are picked up and are ready to greet them at the end of each day.

If you have any questions and/or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact the school.
