We are deeply saddened by the death of one of our bus
drivers, Mr. Jorge Guevara. The school bus which Mr.
Guevara was driving was involved in a tragic accident which led to his death.
Mr. Guevara, 45, was a Locust Valley bus driver for the past six years.

The bus was also carrying one bus monitor and four LVCSD elementary school
children. The students and the monitor sustained injuries which are reported to
be non life-threatening. The bus was bringing the students home from an
educational summer program in Syosset.

District mental health professionals are available to offer grief counseling
and support to students, parents and staff.

Our thoughts are with all of those who were involved in this tragic accident. We
send our sincere sympathy to Mr. Guevara’s family and friends during this
difficult time.
