Letter to parents of students on Bus 24 regarding afternoon traffic incident

Dear Parents of Students on Bus 24,

Late this afternoon, Bus 24 was on its secondary school (grades 6-12) route on State Park Road. It is our current understanding that the bus driver’s actions caused an 18-wheeler truck to swerve to avoid contact with the bus. The truck driver was successful in avoiding the bus, and all students are safe; however, the truck jackknifed. The driver of the truck is fortunately not injured.


Every day, parents entrust the safety of their children to bus drivers to transport them to school and deliver them home safely. Lockhart ISD’s most important priority is the safety of your children. While we investigate, the bus driver will be prohibited from driving for the school district. Once the investigation is completed, you will received further information from the district.


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at Susan.Bohn@lockhart.txed.net.


Truly,


Susan K. Bohn

Superintendent of Schools

Lockhart Independent School District
