UPDATE: The last two patients injured in the November 21 Woodmore Elementary School bus crash have been released from Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
Both children have been transferred to a rehabilitation facility for continued recovery, according to Erlanger.
PREVIOUS STORY: Erlanger says three students remain at Children's Hospital a week after the bus crash that killed six children.
Erlanger says two of the three students are in critical condition, and one child, previously in critical condition, has moved to a patient room and is in fair condition.
PREVIOUS STORY: Members of the Hamilton County Department of Education held a press conference Monday evening to provide updates on the deadly bus crash one week ago.
Interim superintendent Dr. Kirk Kelly said five students remain hospitalized with three of them in critical condition and two of them in fair condition.
Dr. Kelly said 292 students returned to the classrooms of Woodmore Elementary School Monday. He said that's about 85% of the school's student population.
Dr. Kelly thanked the community for its heartfelt efforts to help the students and family members affected by the crash.
“We are humbled by the generous outpouring of support from our community, getting our children back to a normal routine is vital to their well-being,” Dr. Kelly said.
HCDE continues to encourage anyone wishing to donate to give to the Woodmore Fund.
The Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga and United Way are running the fund and 100% of the money raised goes directly to the families.
If you would like to donate items other than money to the fund, you're asked to drop off those donations at New Monumental Baptist Church at 901 Woodmore Lane.
Here is a summary of Monday's press conference by HCDE:
