Jeannette schools will have a flexible day on Friday because of a memorial service for the victims of a house fire

The Jeannette City School District will have flexible instruction on Friday to allow students, staff, and the community to come together to mourn the five lives lost in a house fire last month.

The Jeannette City School District will offer flexible instruction on Friday so that students, staff, and the community can come together to grieve for the five lives lost in a house fire last month.

Superintendent Matt Jones stated that the change will give those who wish to attend a public memorial service at Word of Life Church in Hempfield the opportunity to do so.

He said, “In Jeannette, we believe that some events in life are more important than a typical day of instruction.”

Students in Jeannette City will receive materials and resources for the remote learning day, and teachers will be available to help with any questions.

The service on Friday is to honor Tyler J. King, 27, who passed away on March 20, as well as his four children: Kyson John, 7; Kinzleigh John, 6; Keagan John, 3; and Korbyn John, 1 month. Miranda John, the children's mother, and her two children, Kaiden and Kash, escaped the fire.

The memorial service will start at 10 a.m. and will take place at the Word of Life Church at 4497 Route 136. Afterward, there will be a private burial and reception.
