Early this morning, a drunk driver hit a school bus at Bella Vista and Quail Run.
The bus was headed for Florence High School with 12 students on board. A report from Dana Hawman, Director of Public Relations with the Florence Unified School District, stated that everyone seemed to be okay, at the time the release was sent out. Three ambulances were on site to check that the students were all right.
Florence Unified School District hosted the 1st Annual FUSD Science Fair at Copper Basin K-8 on March 5th as a part of the Arizona SciTech Festival (Feb. 9 to Mar. 17). An estimated crowd of 300 people were in attendance as family, friends and community members stopped by to show their support and to see what the students are doing.Entries in the districtwide show included the top three winners from each school for each category: Animal Sciences, Behavioral & Social Sciences, Cellular & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth & Planetary Science, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Medicine & Health Sciences, Physics & Astronomy and Plant Sciences. Students in grades 5-6 were judged in the Elementary Division, while students in grades 7-8 were placed in the Junior High Division.
