On Tuesday, June 9, at approximately 2:40 p.m., a South Glens Falls Central School District bus was involved in an accident on Gurn Springs Road in Wilton. The bus was carrying nine students at the time, when it went off the side of the road.

Three students were transported to Glens Falls Hospital with minor injuries.

Emergency responders, school district administrators and the school district nurse all immediately responded to the scene. School district officials notified all parents with students on the bus via phone call and arranged for parents to pick up their students at Ballard Elementary School.

“We strive to keep our students safe—it is our first priority,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Patton.
