"We would hope our students would pay attention at all times, but maybe because of the heightened awareness with this accident, maybe some more of them will pay attention," Knowles said. "You do what you can and hope the youngsters are listening. If one student listens and pays attention, that's great. When it comes down to the end of the year, with proms and graduations, it's a difficult time and scary time for parents. All we can do is educate the kids to be careful at what they do and to use their heads."
New York State Police investigators said they are "continuing" their probe into the cause of the crash.
