District Statement – November 4, 2022

This morning at approximately 6:40 AM, an adult male wearing a hooded sweatshirt, backpack and medical mask boarded a school bus that was headed to Bensalem High School.  Thank you to our student who communicated with their family about the unwelcomed passenger.  The family notified our Transportation team who called 911. Existing safety processes and protocols were enacted in collaboration with Bensalem Township Police. 


The Bensalem Township Police intercepted the bus and removed the subject.  At no time was there any interaction between the students and the subject.


Communication with the BHS Community and direct communication with the families of the students on the bus continues as part of this investigation.


As always, our number one priority is to make sure our students and staff are safe.    


Additionally, since this is an active investigation, the district cannot comment any further at this time.
