Jefferson Elementary School and East Penn Community Mourn Student Loss

Dear Community,

I am deeply saddened to inform you that on Monday, May 18, two students who attend Jefferson Elementary School were hit by a car as they were crossing the intersection of 6th and Chestnut Streets in Emmaus.  One student died of her injuries and the second student is currently still hospitalized.  Our heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to the families and friends of these two children as we join together to support them and each other during this tragedy.  The district’s Crisis Management Team will convene at Jefferson Elementary School early Tuesday morning and will be available for students, staff, and families throughout the week.
