ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (AP) -- The St. Louis Park School District has reached a settlement with the families of children killed and injured in a landslide during a school field trip to a St. Paul park.

Nine-year-old Haysem Sani and 10-year-old Mohamed Fofana died in the landslide last May. Ten-year-old Devin Meldahl suffered skull, leg and rib fractures.

The three boys, all fourth-graders at Peter Hobart Elementary School in St. Louis Park, fell when a waterlogged cliff in Lilydale Regional Park collapsed as their class conducted a fossil hunt.

The school district's communications manager did not release the dollar amount of the settlement. The district says it is ''pleased that a settlement was reached.''

The city of St. Paul agreed to pay $1 million in a separate settlement to the families involved.
