Port Angeles: School bus incident still being investigated by school, tribal officials

PORT ANGELES — Lower Elwha Klallam tribal officials and members will meet Thursday to discuss issues related to the arrests of three girls who allegedly assaulted their substitute school bus driver with a plastic bottle Monday.

Tribal Chairman Dennis Sullivan said all three of the girls, who are not identified because they are juveniles, were members of the tribe.

The meeting will serve as a forum for tribal parents and students to air their complaints at the way Port Angeles School District officials handled the incident, Sullivan said.

“I wanted to talk to the community and provide information before a (formal) meeting is set up with the school district,” Sullivan said.
