Student hit by school bus in Renton

A Maywood Elementary student was hit by a school bus at Renton Highlands.

A Maywood Elementary student was hit by a school bus Friday morning at the entrance to the Renton school, Maywood Principal Erin McKee said in a letter to parents.

McKee said that law enforcement and EMTs worked with school staff and the student’s family after the incident. After it was determined that the student did not need further medical attention, the student went home with their family.

McKee said that the school is taking “this situation to heart and … looking at ways to increase safety during drop-off and pick-up.”

“We want to encourage families to be sure to follow all speed limits, traffic laws and exercise additional caution as the mornings become darker often with fog and rain,” she added. “Also students should always look both directions before crossing roads and parking lots and use crosswalks when possible. Some students have reflectors on their backpacks and jackets and that can be very helpful as well.”

Maywood Elementary is located in the Highalnds and is part of the Issaquah School District.
