On Thanksgiving Eve, the Louisa County Public School students and their parents, staff, and the School Board express their heartfelt gratitude for the support and many kindnesses that we have received from the community, from around the state and the entire country. Today, November 23, marks the three-month period since the earthquake that changed our lives. During our recovery from this natural disaster, we have realized that we are strong and resilient; however, we move forward as the result of the generosity of many. We are establishing modular schools to educate 2000 students who lost their school buildings. We have received the FEMA declaration for disaster assistance and for that we are grateful to the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the Governor's office, as well as county officials.
To express our thankfulness, students have completed art work which will be displayed in public locations around the county. Students from the high school Writing Center have assisted in writing thank you notes, but we are using this opportunity to give a public thanks to each and every person who helped in so many ways. You have provided us meals, school supplies, furniture, money, letters, prayers, and emails of encouragement but most of all you have taken the time to care about us. We are recovering, we are rebuilding and we are better than ever because we have survived an earthquake and have been the recipients of your generosity. Thank you.
