How has Midland City affected Dale County students?

Posted: Updated:

One week ago driver Charles Poland was killed on his school bus, 5-year-old Ethan spent the next 143 hours held hostage, Dale County schools closed, state and national news coverage was pervasive.  Yesterday it ended. 

Today on Alabama Live Dale County School Superintendent Donny Bynum talks with Judd Davis about the impact of this ordeal on his students.

Here is Superintendent Bynum's news release:

All of Charles Poland`s children are home now! Our God is so good and we thank all of the prayer warriors in our community, state, and world for their continued prayers.

We thank Mr. Charles Poland for the ultimate sacrifice, when all the information from this tragic event is revealed; we will clearly see a mighty man of God!

We would like to thank the local, state, & federal agencies that worked tirelessly to bring this situation to an end. We are also thankful to our community for coming together in a time of need. The outpouring of love and support is unmatched anywhere.

I want to personally thank our education families for coming together during this extremely difficult time. Please continue to pray for the Poland family, Ethan's family, our students, faculty, and staff as we move forward.
