Medical emergency causes traffic backup near Issaquah Valley Elementary School

NEW — 8:19 p.m. Nov. 24, 2014

A medical incident on a middle school bus passing by Issaquah Valley Elementary School caused a minor traffic backup on Newport Way Northwest at about 3 p.m. Nov. 24.

“The bus pulled into our lot in order to care for the student,” Principal Denise Waters wrote in an email to parents. “The middle school students were calm and quickly disembarked from the bus while the other student was cared for by medics.

“Another district bus promptly arrived to take the middle school students home,” she added. “Our IVE staff and the district transportation team along with Issaquah first responders were able to attend to the situation quickly and safely.”

Traffic was directed around the buses by Issaquah police officer Nathan Lane.
