Today for the first time since the Rancho Tehama tragedy classes are back in session at Rancho Tehama Elementary School.
Students were already in class around 10:45 this morning.
Understandably this has been a traumatic experience for everyone involved and deputies with the sheriff's office asked that press stay away from the property.
Action News Now reporter James Villalbos put in a call to principal Paula Panfilio to try and learn more about what changes were made following the shooting as well as how teachers are handling what happened, but she did not get back to us.
He also tried talking to Richard Fitzpatrick, the superintendent for the Corning Union Elementary School District, and he was not available to speak with us.
However he sent us a statement saying that, numerous law enforcement and fire agencies were at the school to welcome families back and to serve as an honor guard.
He said that the school was completely repaired during the break and that students spent the day with teachers enjoying the many gifts that have been donated by the community.
He concluded his statement by saying quote, “we are grateful for the support of the community and look forward to returning to the regular school activities as we enter into the busy holiday season.”
