    Leesburg elementary student injured in bus incident

    Leesburg Police Department and Loudoun schools confirmed a student at Leesburg's Frances Hazel Reid Elementary was injured by another student in an incident on the bus Wednesday.

    A Loudoun resident, Cheryl Butler, told the Times-Mirror one student was cut by another student with a razor blade on the morning bus ride.

    Wayde Byard, spokesperson for Loudoun County Public Schools, would not confirm or deny a razor blade was involved in the incident. Lt. Jeff Dube with the Leesburg Police Department did confirm a razor blade was involved. Neither went into details on the event.

    Byard said both students are fine and no life threatening injuries were sustained in the event.

    Brenda Jochems, principal of Frances Hazel Reid, sent a message to parents the day of the incident to explain emergency vehicles on the school's property:

    “This morning we had a bus incident that required emergency personnel to respond to our campus,” she wrote. “Because this incident involves student discipline, I will not be able to go into details about the incident. School staff members acted immediately and properly.  Your child may have questions about what happened and may have heard rumors about what happened.  At this point, please reiterate to your child that the school is safe and that the proper measures are being taken to ensure continued safety.   Please remind your child that if they know of a child that is experiencing difficulties that he or she should tell a trusted adult.  Expressing care for a fellow student is not betraying a child’s trust.”
