LAKEPORT (KRON) — Students in the Lakeport Unified School District returned to class Wednesday for the first time since the Valley Fire erupted.
KRON4’s Haaziq Madyun spoke with a parent and student about the mood on the town’s high school campus in the wake of the devastating wildfire.
“I did hear a lot of stories about people losing their houses,” Clearlake High School Sophomore Jordan Peters said.
Peters and her mom Laticia said they are both glad to return to their normal routines now that the Lakeport Unified School District is back to regular session after being closed this week due to the Valley Fire
Dan Camacho, who was at the school picking up his son, said back to normal is a good thing.
“I think it’s good for them, and I think it’s good for everybody…separate themselves from what’s actually going on,” Camacho said.
One student said in this small town, just about everybody knows someone impacted by the Valley Fire. Unfortunately for Laticia Peters, her mother and father lost their Hidden Valley home in the fire
“My mom and dad lost their home…she lost her memories,” Laticia said.
