HUMBOLDT | Students and staff return to school following tragic bus crash

Attention in the town where 15 members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team were killed in a bus crash is turning to supporting students as they return to school following the tragedy.

Kevin Garinger, director of education for the Horizon School Division and president of the Broncos, said schools were closed Monday after the junior hockey team's bus collided with a semi truck northeast of Saskatoon on Friday.

Classes resumed today but Garinger says the focus will be on the well-being of students and staff.

He says some of the junior hockey players were students and others were former students.

Garinger says some teachers also billeted the players.

 He says a crisis response team is in place and counselling is being offered to anyone who needs it.
