  • Emergency Door Malfunction on Smith River Elementary School Bus Route

    Smith River Elementary School – June 6, 2024 – On June 6, 2024, at approximately 3:43 PM, an emergency door malfunction occurred on a school bus running the Smith River Elementary School route. The incident took place on Sarina Road in Smith River.

    The malfunction triggered the bus's alarm system, causing it to come to a complete stop. A replacement bus was quickly dispatched to the scene to ensure the safety and timely transportation of the students.

    We are pleased to report that there were no injuries resulting from this incident. The safety of our students is our top priority, and we are grateful for the quick response from our transportation team in handling the situation efficiently.

    Del Norte Unified School District is conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the malfunction and will implement necessary measures to prevent such incidents in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
