At about 8:30 a.m. this morning, one of our Hidden Creek Elementary students was injured by a passenger vehicle when crossing Bethel Burley near Kira. The school bus was approaching the bus stop when an oncoming passenger vehicle struck the student as they were crossing the street. The parent was at the scene at the time of the incident and accompanied their child in an aid car for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Hidden Creek Principal Laura Smith and district staff went to the scene to offer assistance to students who may have witnessed the accident. Counselors will be on hand for students and staff today at Hidden Creek.

In these kinds of situations, you can be assured that our highly qualified and compassionate staff are taking especially good care of your students and each other.
