It was a life lesson for students in the Bend La Pine School District. Following the earthquake and tsunami, spokesperson Julianne Repman says they are helping a group of Japanese exchange students who just arrived here: “They literally arrived just prior to the tsunami and earthquake. So when they came to school we really came to school, we really started to hustle and work together to make sure we could get phone calls out for them, and get all the information that they needed and really make sure that they had the tools they needed to process the situation; and also the resources so they had folks to really talk to, to get what their seeing on TV, they were internalizing and be able to find out that their families at home were safe and sound.” A band from Mountain View High School is scheduled to go to Japan next week. Repman says they're evaluating the situation and will decide soon if they'll still take the trip.
