Our School in Oxnard
By Micaela Ellis
Right now, Ojai has been going through fire problems. The Thomas Fire has passed around Ojai and now is in Carpinteria. A lot of Ojai citizens have been forced to leave under mandatory evacuation. There are still embers on the ground in Ojai and some people still can’t return to their homes because the air is too smoky. That is why we are doing the Lighthouse School of Ojai in Oxnard.
In Oxnard it is a little smoky, but we still have good air quality. It is safe for Lighthouse to be in Oxnard. My mom runs the Lighthouse School of Ojai and my house is in Oxnard. We are doing classes in the garage and the guest cottage. Every day, I wake up, get ready, and walk to school. It’s better than going to school in a super smoky area!
