This afternoon one of our school busses carrying a Junior High School athletic team was involved in a motor vehicle accident in Westford along with a motorcyclist.  While all of our students and staff are safe, the accident resulted in a tragic fatality to the motorcyclist. The accident is currently under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police and the Westford Police.  We do not have any additional details of the incident at this time. Per our procedure, we have placed the driver on leave while this situation is investigated.


The school has been in communication with all of the families of students on the bus at the time of the accident.  We will be making counseling and support services available to students and staff. We are deeply saddened by this news and our hearts go out to the family of the motorcyclist and the Westford community.  Sincerely, Peter Light Superintendent of Schools
