FARMERSBURG, Ind, (WTHI) - The halls were quiet and somber as classes started back up Thursday at North Central High School. That’s as less than six days earlier three students died in a car accident.
School Principal Monty Kirk says it's been a day and an even the school has been trying to prepare for.
"The next couple days are going to be difficult. We got a lot of grieving student’s teachers and community members. Trying to game plan to reach everybody's needs," said Kirk.
Instead of starting where classes left off many classes used the time to mourn and seek counseling. One of the main counselors being Ryan Gilman who works at the school.
"My goal is to just be there for whoever that needs it. Whether it's a staff member, a kid. We got a lot of kids that are grieving," said Gilman.
North Central only has one school counselor. So, counselors from the Hamilton Center and other local schools stepped in to help.
"Just a lot of extra hands to do and just looking for signs and seeing how we can come around kids and help them," said Gilman.
It's a pain that will not be healed overnight, but the school is thankful for all of the community support in this difficult time.
"It’s been impressive, unfortunately, I’m a little sad it takes something like this for everyone to work together but we're happy to have the help and we appreciate everyone concern," said Kirk.
Kegan Ennen’s visitation will be 4 PM to 8 PM with the funeral being Friday at the Holmes Memorial Chapel at 11 AM.
Thomas Jarosack and Tyson Boyll visitation will be Friday 5 PM to 7 PM at the North Central High School with services to follow.
