Schools serving students in the landslide-affected area made it their business to keep the day as normal as possible, while offering support and emergency assistance to families in need. Asst. Supt. Steven Keller said a key piece in handling the disaster included constant communication. "We had ongoing communication throughout the day without panic," Keller said.
