For Chardon

I went to bed at 10 PM last night and woke up to this automated phone call at 11:30PM …

“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.
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 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 will be communicated through the usual methods not later than 5:30 am
We will stay in close contact with our school community as this situation develops further.”
We’re working to bring you more details as they become available.

We are a strong community and the overwhelming support from all over has been amazing and most welcomed. I for one will not give another thought to that monster who so unconscionably murdered three young people on February 27, 2012. He holds no power over us.

Thank you for all your overwhelming support.
