After news broke of the Lookingglass Elementary School fire that leveled an entire building Tuesday night, community members in Douglas County immediately began reaching out to offer assistance.
The Lookingglass Elementary TAPS program has launched a fundraising effort to direct people’s desire to help.
The group will have “unity” t-shirts available for sale next week for $10 each. The funds raised from the t-shirt sales will go to replacing what was destroyed in the fire that ripped through the school building.
To pre-order, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lookingglass Elementary TAPS is described as a program that “provides Lookingglass Elementary students, parents, staff and family activities throughout the year.”
There is also a town hall meeting scheduled for Monday, January 2nd at the Lookingglass Grange. The meeting will begin at 4:00 p.m.
School officials say they still plan to begin school after the break as originally planned, the logistics however are not clear at this time.
We will be following this story and continue to share updates on the situation.
Kevin Miller, the Superintendent of the Winston-Dillard School District, will be on Inside Douglas County Friday to talk about options the school has and the developments of the investigation into the fire.
