A Truesdell Middle School student was hit by a car in front of the school Wednesday morning, according to school officials and a Sedgwick County Dispatch supervisor.

The 911 call was made at 7:49 a.m.

The student was hit on South Glenn near West Pawnee.

Susan Arensman, spokeswoman for USD 259, said the student was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

The student’s age wasn’t immediately known Wednesday morning.

In an email to Truesdell parents, Principal Vicki Manning said the student is doing fine.

“We want to remind parents to always be cautious when picking up and dropping off students in case a student walks out in the middle of the street,” she said. “This would also be a good time to remind your child to follow traffic safety rules and always use crosswalks and to look both ways before crossing the street.”

No other students were injured, but some may have witnessed the incident. Manning encourages parents to talk with their students if they were witnesses.

“If you feel that your child is in need of assistance beyond what you can offer at home, please feel free to contact our office and we will have staff available to provide support,” she said.
