A message from CHARDON LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
Thursday, September 11, 2014
Local and State law enforcement have confirmed that TJ Lane has escaped from an Allen County prison. Chardon Local School District officials have been in contact with law enforcement and are closely monitoring the situation.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Demetrius, Russell and Danny and all others affected by the tragedy and this evening's developments.
The safety and well-being of all students, staff and community remain our highest priority. District officials are taking steps to ensure that counseling and other support services are available during the day on Friday for those that may require assistance.
Chardon Schools will continue to monitor the developments in order to make a decision concerning tomorrow’s school day. A decision to close school will be communicated through the the usual methods not later than 5:30 Friday morning.
We will stay in close contact with our school community as this situation develops further.
