Hi All

Late Sunday evening we got word that there was a fire at the district bus depot. We arrived at the scene to find that we had a fire in a bus that resulted in the loss of that vehicle. Fortunately, the fire department was able to get to the scene very quickly and prevent the spread to other vehicles. However, we have grounded the buses that were parked immediately on either side of the fire in order to inspect and eliminate the smoke smell.

The police and fire investigators have not found any evidence of foul play and the fire appears to be accidental and electrical in nature. Our own security team has inspected each vehicle and we currently have our mechanics inspecting each bus to ensure that all is safe and secure for Tuesday's school day. We will have alternate buses in place and don't expect any impact upon school day transportation.

Be Well,

Dave Bennardo
