Hearts are heavy today at Springfield Middle School and Battle Creek Central High as students and faculty learn of the passing of a beloved teacher and coach.

On Thursday, January 18th, Battle Creek School District  First asked for prayers for a colleague, Ms. Loraine Mahar, then later announced her passing.



These are the only two announcements that have been made and no further details are currently available. We will update this post as more information becomes available.
Our thoughts and prayers go out the students, faculty, and family of  Ms. Mahar.
