    RHAM Middle School in Hebron is increasing security and evaluating the traffic pattern on campus in the wake of a crash that critically injured a seventh grade math teacher last week.

    Dawn Mallory-Bushor, 65, of Groton, was struck outside the school on Friday morning.

    Officials said a mother was leaving the parking lot after dropping her children off at the high school and drove into the bus lane from the middle school.

    When she realized she was in the bus lane, she abruptly backed up and hit Mallory-Bushor.

    Police are investigating the crash and no charges have been filed.

    In the wake of the accident, RHAM is monitoring the traffic flow this week as school officials work to determine whether the traffic pattern needs improvement.

    On Tuesday morning, the superintendent met with a civil engineer who will study the traffic flow and make recommendations.

    A resident state trooper is also stationed in front of the school for security.

    Mallory-Bushor remains hospitalized and her family and friends are raising money to help with living costs because she is unable to work at the middle school, her tax business and her college jobs.

    More on the fundraiser is posted on GiveForward.com.

    The family is also posting updates on Mallory-Bushor’s condition on the page.
