The clock in my classroom stopped at 5:32 p.m. I worked all day in the dim light cast through my open windows. Outside I could hear chain saws and heavy equipment. We took candles to the restrooms. We gathered, staff and faculty, in the lightest places; the main hallway, the cafeteria, to talk, catch up, "you ok?", "did you get hit?"
The interior of our building is ok. There is no damage in my room at all. The maintenance crew tromped on the roof all day long. There's damage there, but they will get it fixed.
Today I will try to reach all my kid's parents to let them know they can bring their kiddos by tomorrow morning to get their things. I look forward to seeing them as my own class on last time.
This page, this local guy, has done a wonderful job covering the aftermath for our community.
Please visit and see what we are dealing with. And thank for the prayers, comments, and thoughts.
