A bus carrying 34 Kent School District children slid off the road making a turn this morning, but none of the children was hurt, according to the Kent Fire Department.

The bus, heading north on a somewhat icy 124th  Avenue Southeast went into a ditch shortly after 9 a.m. at the intersection of Southeast 270th Street, according fire department spokesman Kyle Ohashi.

The children were taken off the bus through an emergency door because the main door was blocked by the ditch. Another bus was called in to take the youngsters to school.
