Goshen campus hit by tornado, buildings and surrounding area suffer heavy damage

As many of Warrior families are aware, the National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Goshen just after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6. 
 
Goshen school buildings have sustained varying degrees of damage, just like many of the buildings and homes located in our area. Several windows at Marr-Cook Elementary have been blown out and some school roofs have been damaged. Scores of trees are down around the campus, and the district is currently without power.
 
Summer Camp at the Goshen Learning Academy will be closed on Thursday, July 7 due to the power outage and damage to the building.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to praise the staff of the Learning Academy. As the storm approached today, staff members moved about 30 school age children to a safe hallway. These staff members also took care of students until all could be picked up by their families, even as they were concerned about their own family members. We are so proud of their caring hearts and their bravery.
 
Warriors always come together as a community and we know in the days ahead we will come together again.
