Our Bear Valley Community has experienced the tragic death of one of our 7th graders, Alex Speer. The Speer Family were traveling together returning from vacation in Idaho when their van overturned injuring six family members and killing Alex on Saturday, July 28th. The Speer family is recovering in a Provo area hospital and will be staying with family members until all can return home to Escondido. Their expected return date is unknown at this time. More information will be forthcoming on how we can best help them in their time of need.
