Winslow Feels Blast And Reacts Positively

Flags made by Thomas Jefferson Elementary students line the fence outside of the school's playground. The students met on the basketball court Friday morning to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing patriotic songs.

Winslow Police Chief Stephen Garnett said the security at Winslow schools was heightened to ensure the safety of the community’s children.

The City Council also cancelled its meeting last Tuesday night and rescheduled to Thursday, September 13.

Memorial services were held Tuesday evening at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and First Christian Church to remember the victims of these terrorist acts and their families.

Wednesday morning all Winslow schools began their day with a moment of silence in honor of the victims, but other than that, they tried to make the Tuesday and Wednesday last week seem as normal as possible for the students.
