Two students were transported from Appoquinimink High School to the hospital on Tuesday, Sept. 5, the first day of school, according to Albert Volpe, supervisor of student services for the Appoquinimink School District.
Volpe wouldn’t name the students other than to say they are both male and freshmen at Appoquinimink High. One of them was taken by ambulance to the hospital, the other was flown out by helicopter to the hospital.
Their injuries are not life-threatening, Volpe said.
He said he couldn’t be specific on what happened, give the students’ names, or detail their injuries because of HIPAA, which is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which makes patients’ health records private.
There was a bomb scare at Appoquinimink on the same day as the two students who were taken to the hospital.
Volpe said the incidents were not related. Police said the bomb threat was unfounded.
