Mayodan, NC - Students at McMichael High School returned to school Monday after their principal, Leigh Jones, was injured in a fatal car wreck Friday.

High school staff said they planned to hold a staff crisis meeting prior to the start of the school day and another meeting at the day's end. 

Jones is recovering after 70-year-old Linda Chandler crossed the center line on US 220 North Friday. Chandler died after the head-on collision at Moses Cone Hospital.

WFMY News 2 first reported Jones was involved in the accident Saturday and noticed students shared their support for the McMichael principal on Twitter.

A McMichael High School representative said get well cards may be sent to the school or dropped off at the front office: 6845 Highway 135, Mayodan, NC 27027. You can also share your well wishes on Twitter with the hashtag #PrayForMsJones.

Leigh Jones has been employed as principal at McMichael High School since August 2011. She was awarded Rockingham County Schools Principal Of The Year 2012.
