SPECIAL ALERT: UPDATE
UPDATE: Parents/Guardians please review the Emergency Instructions that were previously sent to your email addresses.
Fire trucks were dispatched to Pine Forge Academy’s Kimbrough Hall dormitory at 9 a.m. this morning, due to a fire. Fire trucks were able to contain the fire, and no one was injured.
Students were already in class across campus, and the staff who were in the dorm at the time were able to exit unharmed. Students will continue with their regular school schedule for the rest of the day.
Arrangements are being made for the 69 young ladies who are displaced as a result of the fire.
The fire department confirmed that the fire started in a dorm room after some articles of clothing were ignited due to its close proximity to a wall heater. The safety of our students and faculty is our highest priority and all parents have been notified.
Pine Forge Academy staff, led by Principal Nicole Falconer, will continue to monitor any further developments and keep you informed. Questions and further inquiries can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
