Dear Parents, Grandparents and Community Members,

It is with deep sadness that I bring this information to you.  On Monday evening an event took place in which a 12-year-old student passed as a result of suicide. This morning, counselors are on hand to assist staff and students to deal with this unfortunate event and will continue to be available.   

I understand information was released over the scanner as this event unfolded. Please be respectful of the family’s privacy as they attempt to navigate this situation.

Please be aware of your own child/children in coping with this tragedy or dealing with the news of a student suicide. If you believe your child/children are in need of counseling as a result, please contact the campus so arrangements can be made with one of the counselors.

Dr. John R. Mastillo
