Today we received tragic news. We were informed of a car accident on Hwy 126 just East of Mapleton that claimed the life of two young adults and seriously injured others. Several of those involved have many close ties, friends and family in the Fern Ridge area.
Elmira High School created a “safe room” where students could go to talk to an adult and or a counselor if they needed to do so. EHS will maintain this “safe room” again tomorrow as needed. Several families understandably picked up their students from school today. In the coming days we trust families to make the best decision for their student regarding school attendance.
We are here to support students and parents in whatever way that we can. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mapleton High School community and the many families affected by this tragedy in our local area.
