Dave Holmer, the principal of Darrington High School, said his school wants to share their gratitude with everyone who has lent support during such a difficult time. The whole school wants to "say 'thank you' to all the individuals, groups, and agencies for the support and encouragement."

Students and staff at the school, as well as the community of Darrington at-large, has been dealing with the aftermath of the Oso landslide, which occurred March 22 along State Route 530. In such a small community, almost everyone was personally impacted.

The high school has also served as gathering place. On March 26, a prayer vigil was held in the auditorium for victims and families affected by the devastating landslide.

This week, the high school baseball team played it first game since the tragedy, beating Lummi H.S. 7-3 on Monday.

Parents in the stands said Darrington may never fully heal, but the game represented a step towards normalcy for the kids and the community.
