EMSB REASSURES PARENTS AFTER BUS ACCIDENT

MONTREAL, MAY 30, 2017 –In the wake of a school bus accident which occurred on Monday afternoon, the English Montreal School Board has sent a letter to all of the parents of the students at Nesbitt Elementary School in Rosemount.

Unfortunately, a pedestrian was hit by the bus. None of the 14 students on board were hurt. The principal arrived on the scene soon after, spoke to the students and arranged for a second bus to transport them home.

The principal will contact all of the parents of those children who were on the bus. On Tuesday morning professionals from the EMSB Student Services Department will be on site at the Rosemount school to provide support to these children and any others in need. The EMSB is aware of the situation and will follow up with the school to provide any additional support required.
