October 26 bus incident
Posted on 10/26/2016
This morning, a CCISD bus made a tight right turn onto Virginia Street. As a result of this turn, the side of the bus scrapped a light pole knocking off one of the clearance lights on the bus. Less than 30 students from HJM Elementary and Calhoun High School were on the bus at the time of the incident.

All students were checked by EMS personnel and were cleared to proceed to school. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
The bus involved in the incident completed the route and will have the clearance light replaced. The driver involved followed standard CCISD procedures.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Cowley recognized local law enforcement for their response.

"I appreciate the quick response of the Port Lavaca Police Department, Calhoun County EMS and CCISD Police Department in responding to this bus incident," he said.
