Bus fumes sicken HP students
HOLLAND PATENT — Eleven students from the Holland Patent School District were hospitalized Wednesday after a mechanical problem on a school bus exposed them to vehicle fumes, according to a statement by school district officials.
Superintendent Jason P. Evangelist said that the bus was bound for morning classes at Oneida BOCES when it sustained the minor mechanical problem.
The students on the bus
were exposed to fumes, and
they were checked and cleared by a school nurse when they arrived at BOCES, the statement said.
The students continued to classes, but Evangelist said
when they returned to the district shortly after noon, some of the students reported feeling sick.
The district called paramedics to the school to check the students and Evangelist said that most of the students were again cleared medically.
A total of 11 students were sick enough that Evangelist said they were transported to local medical facilities for further examination and treatment.
He said the parents and guardians of the students were notified and an alert went out to other parents.
“It is not believed that this incident has resulted in any serious health problems,” Evangelist said in a release.
“But we believe it is always best to be cautious with possible student health concerns,” the Holland Patent superintendent added.
