Wisconsin high school students reopen after school shutdown

WIKILES, Wis.

(AP) The school district of Madison High School reopened Thursday, two days after a school bus carrying students from neighboring St. Paul’s High School was struck by a train.

The district says about 1,200 students were in the bus.

St. Paul officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the reopened school.

The school district said it has also reopened its campus, which was shuttered for about two weeks after the accident on Friday morning.

A school district spokesperson says the district was notified by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety on Thursday that the school bus was struck and that the students and their families have been notified.
