Gardner Bus

Early this morning we had a small bus roll over on Hwy 69 while on its way toward Walsenburg. 3 high school age children were on the bus. It is believed that all students and the bus driver are ok. I do not have an official report on the injury status as yet.
I do know the bus transporting kids to Gardner school has arrived safely and school will be in session.
When I receive all the facts to process and make another statement, I shall do so.

This incident will very likely affect our transportation routes between Gardner and Walsenburg since our bus is totaled. We will be discussing bus route plans as soon as possible in order to determine what adjustments will have to be made.

update on bus roll over: Please understand that I cannot provide any more info than what I give due to privacy issues.
Reports have come to me that of the 3 students some suffered different lacerations on the bodies/face, bruising, possible pelvic injury and a student has cracked or broken ribs.

More updates will be provided as information comes in.
