All workplace accidents that result in a death are investigated by Oregon OSHA.

Construction was underway at Kelly Middle School and Yujin Gakuen Elementary School due to two roof trusses that were falling in on one of the gyms.

Currently, students are engaging in distance learning and not attending school on-site. Delf said some families may have been briefly on campus, at the far west lot, to pick up school materials.

The principals of Kelly Middle School and Yujin Gakuen Elementary School shared a message with their families Friday that reads in part quote:

"We were deeply saddened to learn that this afternoon there was a accident outside the school building involving a construction worker. Emergency services responded, but sadly the person did not survive. Our thoughts are with their family, friends and coworkers."
