Barryton Elementary School (MI)

Start Date: 01/29/2020


This event was at an elementary school in rural Barryton, MI, 30 miles east of Big Rapids. A second grader died from a brain tumor over the weekend; a psychologist and behaviorist were at the school Monday and Tuesday and they requested HOPE teams for half a day Wednesday. The teams greeted the kids being dropped off by parents and on buses, and we deployed in the library where all the classes were brought according to a scheduled the principal had made.
