Official Communication

Today (3/11/10) at Palestine High School a tragic accident occurred involving a construction worker who was killed while working under a portable building. No students or employees of PISD were involved or
injured. Preliminary investigations have concluded that the ground was wet and saturated due to the recent rains. The weight of the portable building and the saturated ground caused the building to shift and fall off the jacks supporting the building, killing the man working under the structure.

This is a tragic and unfortunate accident and the entire PISD staff and family send their prayers to the family, friends, and co‚Äźworkers of the deceased. No names have been released at this time.

Sincerely,
Thomas A. Wallis, Ed.D
Superintendent
