Kent student dies on school bus

COVINGTON, Wash. - A student from Kentwood High School died on a school bus Wednesday morning, deputies said.

Deputies responded to the incident at Mattson Middle School in Covington around 7:13 a.m. on Wednesday.

The King County Sheriff's Office initially investigated the death as "suspicious" but on Thursday, they said the student's death "appears to be associated with a medical event only."

The district sent a letter to families and identified the student as a Kentwood High School student.

The district notified parents of the incident on Wednesday morning via text message, saying all other students were safe.

Counseling services will be available for students who may need it.
