Dear Eastern Christian School Community,
During a sophomore class meeting in the Eastern Christian High School Media Center today, a number of bookcases collapsed. The faculty members present responded immediately to the situation by ensuring that everyone was accounted for and safe.
As a school community, we are grateful that our students and staff members were spared from serious injury and that they were able to immediately resume their school day in other classrooms. We are looking into the cause of the problem and will immediately begin the process of replacing the bookcases in question. In the meantime, the Media Center is temporarily closed, and we expect that it will be reopened early next week.
The leadership of Eastern Christian School continues to hold student safety as a matter of critical importance. We are thankful to our Sovereign God for his protection of our students and staff.
We take comfort that our true safety and comfort comes from our knowledge that we are not our own, but belong body and soul to our faithful Savior who watches over us in such a way that not a hair can fall from our heads without the will of our Father in heaven. We begin our school day Tuesday morning secure in this comfort.
Thomas G. Dykhouse
Executive Director & Head of School
