Dear Parents & Guardians, 

It is with deep regret that we inform you about a recent loss to our school community. This weekend we learned of the passing of Mr. David Hunt. David has served our school in multiple buildings and departments. This loss is sure to raise many emotions, concerns, and questions for our entire school, especially our students.

Our school district has a Crisis Intervention Team made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel at difficult times such as this. At our school, we have counselors available for any student who may need or want help or any type of assistance surrounding this loss. We encourage you, as parents, to also feel free to use our resources.

We have enclosed some information that may be useful to you in helping your child at home. If you would like additional information or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact members of our Crisis Intervention Team Mr. Joe Sams, Mr. Jody Dow, Mr. Jim Engledow, Mrs. Jeannete Wilcox, Mrs. Adrianne Krier, and Mrs. Cheyenne Hudson. 

We are saddened by the loss to our school community and will make every effort to help you and your child as you need.


Dr. Benjamin Merrill
