Another posting on the Facebook page said Alexis was taken into surgery at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
“They completed the first stage to release the pressure on her brain,” a message that was posted at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday said. “She is holding strong so they decided to proceed with some of the additional surgeries she needs.”
At roughly 4:30 p.m., a posting was added that said she was out of surgery. Her condition was listed as critical but stable.
“Pray,” a posting stated.
Pugh said Alexis was an excellent student.
“She’s very outgoing,” Pugh said. “She’s just a nice young lady. Our classes will miss her.”
To show support for Alexis, members of the high school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes held a prayer session Wednesday morning, Pugh said.
She said officials sent a letter home with high school students on Wednesday telling their parents about Lexi’s condition and that further help was available.
“We want you to be aware that your child may show varying reactions to this tragic accident,” a portion of the letter said. “Children often display subtle reactions ... Any or all of these reactions are normal, but should they become prolonged or very severe, please contact your school counselor or administrator for additional guidance and support.”
The accident was reported at about 8:40 a.m. Tuesday
Boonsboro police Officer Charles Stanford said that a Toyota Venza being driven east by Alexis’ mother, Lauren Jarman, and a westbound Buick LeSabre being driven by Charles Thompson, of Gettysburg, Pa., collided head-on.
The accident occurred in the 200 block of Potomac Street in front of the old Boonsboro school.
Police said Alexis, who was sitting in the back seat behind her mother at the time of the collision, suffered head injuries. She was flown to shock trauma by a Maryland State Police helicopter.
Officers said Lauren Jarman and Thompson were taken by ambulance to Meritus Medical Center, which no longer provides the conditions of patients to the media.
Boonsboro police did not answer several messages on Wednesday seeking comment about the accident and the conditions of Thompson and Lauren Jarman.
However, a Facebook posting titled “Boonsboro, Maryland (MD)” said that Lauren Jarman was released from Meritus and was with her daughter in Baltimore.
