A candlelight vigil will be held on Tuesday, January 9, 2018, at 5:30 PM at Westmore Oaks Elementary School to honor the memory of Sophie and Sara Rouin who died on New Year's Eve. The vigil is open to all members of our community who wish to come together to mourn the loss of our beloved students and sisters.
Our school district has assembled a team of counselors and support personnel to assist teachers and students throughout this ordeal now that schools are back in session. Support services will be available for students and teachers for the entire first week back and in the future for grief counseling for anyone who needs it.
