EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Talks resume Tuesday at the Eagle Point school district near Medford where classes are being held despite a strike.

The district says it will correct problems with bus service that occurred Monday, the first day with substitute employees. Some buses ran late or missed students.

On Tuesday morning, the district reported that a bus carrying five students was in an accident involving a car. No injuries were reported, and another bus took the students to school.

The district said that more than 2,500 students were present Monday, an attendance rate of about 63 percent. Normal is about 93 percent.

The Eagle Point Education Association began the strike May 7. Classes were canceled last week.

The district has 328 employees, including 186 teachers, and a total of about 4,100 students.
