The Grade 3–5 track meet ended on a serious note at about 2:30 PM this afternoon. A micro-burst of wind blew up suddenly, catching some of our shade tents. Although they were secured with concrete blocks, four of our big tents tumbled across the soccer field, through the crowd. Teachers, students and parents reacted quickly. Approximately fifteen adults and students were treated by our nurses on the field or came later to the Nursing Office. Two adults requiring stitches were taken for treatment in a school vehicle.
We were unable to finish the track meet. However, on behalf of all the teachers, staff and parents who worked so hard all afternoon, I hope that everyone will remember the fun they had, the competition, the cheering. Awards will be passed out to the class teachers later this week.
