Willamina schools to close early

Students will be bused home starting at 12:30 p.m.

Wasson’s funeral is set for 2 p.m. at the New Horizons Church, 2705 N.E. Destiny Drive in McMinnville.

The decision was made to cancel afternoon classes because not enough substitutes were available.

Wasson was appointed to the board in 2008. Later elected to a full term, he served until June 2013.

He chaired the board during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years.

Survivors include his wife, Julia, who has worked in the district since 2000. She is a former speech instructional assistant and is currently the elementary school music director.

The district’s Spring Concert, scheduled for Thursday, April 23, has been canceled.
