NEWS: #USA (Social Media) "Twitter and The Ohio Middle School Shooting" - The Daily Beast

WHAT ROLE DID TWITTER PLAY IN THE OHIO SHOOTING?

Chardon Local Schools Alert/Information 

Yesterday, February 27, 2012, was a profoundly sad day in Chardon with the shooting incident that occurred at our high school.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families at this difficult time. Our number one priority is to reach out and help our students, staff and families deal with this horrific tragedy. 

To that end, all of our buildings are closed today, February 28, 2012, with grief counselors available at Chardon Middle School from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM, and again at St.Mary School from 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

Area clergy will host a Candlelight Vigil for the entire Chardon community at 7:00 PM this evening at St. Mary Church,401 North St.Chardon.

Our sincere gratitude is extended to area law enforcement and safety officers who responded with such professionalism. Their immediate response surely limited the scope of this tragedy.

We also want to thank our students, staff and parents who conducted themselves with grace and dignity considering the circumstances.
