We have confirmed 19 students from 16 schools were on the bus tour headed to Humboldt State University. The high schools include: San Fernando, Grant, Dorsey, Fremont, City of Angels, Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools, Manual Arts, Banning, Carson, Chavez, Diego Rivera, Belmont, Wilson, Chatsworth, Jefferson and Middle College. Only one or two students participated from each school. We will be providing support at these campuses this morning.
At this time, we know that there have been 10 fatalities, including five students. However, we do not know if those students attended LAUSD schools. Students from throughout Southern California were participating.
A team from LAUSD, led by Senior Deputy Superintendent Michelle King is traveling to the crash site.
An information line has been set up for families by Humboldt State University Police. That number is 707-826-6327. The Red Cross is also assisting the reunification of students and parents.
When more information is available, we will provide another update.
