At approximately 2:05pm, school district officials were informed that an automobile accident on Welch Street in Waynesville may have resulted in a propane leak. Todd Trantham, Transportation Director, began notifying Junaluska Elementary School, Waynesville Middle School, and Tuscola High School about the need to alter some afternoon bus routes due to the accident and potential propane leak.
The change in afternoon dismissal is limited to students who typically ride buses to the Welch Street area of Waynesville from Junaluska Elementary School, Waynesville Middle School, and Tuscola High School. No other schools are impacted by this change.
Schools are in the process of attempting to contact the parents of students who usually ride the bus and live in the affected area. If you have children who live in the Welch Street area of Waynesville who typically ride the bus home, feel free to contact your child’s school and provide guidance on your child’s dismissal for this afternoon.
