Shortly after departing Mansfield Snow Trails this evening, one of the charter buses carrying the 8th-grade members of our ski club struck a power pole while attempting to make a tight turn. Nobody was injured, but all three buses have been delayed in their return to school as a result of this incident. The bus company is sending another bus to bring students home while the authorities complete their work to investigate and document the accident.
If you have a child on this trip, they already may have contacted you to make you aware of what has occurred. The replacement bus in still on its way to pick up the students but the other two buses have just been released and are on their way back to school. Please know that once we have an estimated time of arrival for all students, we will share it with them and have them contact their families directly with this information.
We apologize for any inconvenience this matter has caused and appreciate your understanding.
