Jackson principal thanks Ascension Parish for support during fire
On behalf of the Jackson Primary School staff and students, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Father David Glassmire and Ascension Parish.
On Wednesday, March 8th, the school needed to evacuate all students quickly due to a serious house fire, across the street from the school. It was a very cold and windy morning as 350 primary students walked to the Ascension Parish parking lot in evacuation protocol.
Within minutes, students were able to enter the Sacred Heart reception hall and knew they were safe and warm. Father David welcomed us immediately and quickly supported our needs in order for the school to operate an efficient evacuation dismissal plan.
Additionally, we would like to thank Sherry Otto who saw us coming and quickly communicated this to Father Glassmire, Dave Fasano, and the City Police Department for assisting us that morning.
The overall support from Ascension Parish is a true reflection of the wonderful and compassionate people that make up Batavia’s community.
