Crestline Elementary, a home for the kids and I for the five years we were there (we changed schools when we moved this fall), burned to the ground in an early morning fire today.
I spent many hours there today with staff and other friends as we tried to process it all.
I am in completely shock. The people of Crestline have been my family for years. They saw me through some really awful times in my life and I helped build and shape Crestline into the school it is by my years of work on the PTO. It is a part of who I am. And the building is now gone.
I am heart broken.
I have volunteered to help with whatever I can as plans are made on where students and staff will go. With all my heart, I hope they can all be kept together. Time will tell.
It's been a tough, tough day.
