Fatal Car crash outside La Serna High School
"It is with great sadness that I let you all know that there was a car crash outside the La Serna campus this morning involving an adult driver and five LSHS students. One of our students was killed in the crash, the other four were injured. The District is working with the Whittier Police Department to determine the details surrounding the accident. Given the gravity of the situation, students have been allowed to respond to texts/calls from parents to confirm that they are safe. The District will work with LSHS to ensure counselors are available to all students and staff through the week. " - Loring Davies, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services
