MILTON-FREEWATER, Ore. - Ron Richwine, the Associate Principal of Ferndale Elementary School in Milton-Freewater, died Sunday after a year-long battle with esophageal cancer.

The school district's superintendent says school is canceled Friday so staff and students can attend Richwine's funeral, scheduled at the Adventist Church in Milton-Freewater.

The InterMountain Education Service District sent three Crisis Flight Teams to the district to help students and staff cope with the loss.
