Also on the media site was an icon of a pistol next to the word “hit list.”
The Florence Unified School District January Governing Board Meeting was held at the FUSD District Office auditorium on Wednesday, 1/9/13.Florence K-8 hosted the meeting, providing curriculum and student leader reports.
On June 30, 2011, Gabriel Carrillo was called into the office of the Superintendent for the Florence Unified School District. It was there that he learned, fellow co-worker and friend, John Allee, was very ill and would not be returning as the Principal of Walker Butte for some time.
From that day on, Gabriel Carrillo, Heather Nelson and Suzanne Morgan worked together to keep Walker Butte on track and give John Allee piece of mind so that he could focus on healing.
