An unexpected and tragic event delayed school for students on Wednesday, April 4th.
Police from multiple townships needed further time to continue an investigation into a shooting on Rebecca Drive in the neighborhood across the street from the high school.
In addition, a high wind advisory reflected an additional obstacle for buses and drivers.
The Post-Gazette’s traffic feed posted that “A section of Camp Horne Road is closed at Route 65 in Emsworth and Crawford Road in Kilbuck due to a fallen tree.”
While buses had to take secondary routes, the initial shooting and police investigation was the reason Dr. Ralston delayed school.
In an e-mail to the community Wednesday afternoon, Ralston stated, “Today was truly a challenging day for all of us. A tragic event like the one that occurred in our community touches everyone whether they had a personal connection to those directly involved or not.”
Ralston continued in the e-mail to provide links to resources for district families looking for ways to discuss Wednesday’s events.
