Memorial Services

Visitation and memorial services are being held  this week for the students involved in the tragic car accident last week. Information for Bridget Giere can be found here. Details about services for Stephanie Carlson can be found here.

About 250+ students attended a memorial gathering on Monday, December 5.

School officials, in cooperation with Ramsey County, provided a safe and dedicated opportunity for those who wished to place memorials in memory of Bridget Giere and Stephanie Carlson, near the site of the accident.

A police escort accompanied buses and vehicles leaving Mounds View High School at 2:20 p.m. Parking was available at nearby North Heights Lutheran Church. The intersection was temporarily barricaded by Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department until 2:50 p.m. After hot cider and cocoa was provided by North Heights, the buses returned students to school afterwards.

For everyone’s safety, this opportunity was the recommended way to leave memorials near the site.
