The 61-year-old bus driver was also killed.
In a statement, the school said it’s canceling the rest of the season because of great care and concern for the physical health and emotional well-being of the students.
Investigators have determined the driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but the cause remains under investigation.
A memorial remains at the field where the lacrosse team played.
