I do not have many details at this time as this situation is still being investigated by the police I’ve been told that a 10th grader at our school has been identified as the victim. circulating many rumors about the student’s condition, we have no confirmed details. That said, this is a serious situation and our thoughts are with this student’s family.

Although this tragic incident did not take place at the school, we wanted to make sure you were aware as we know that the news of this incident is spreading throughout the school and our community. I have shared this information with our faculty this morning so that teachers are alert and can help students who may be bored and need to talk to one of our counselors. I also asked that we have additional school resource officers on campus today. I felt that our students, staff and families would feel better with additional security and support at our school.

Again, even though this incident did not take place in school, it affects us all in the central community – our students, families, staff and the community. As always, we appreciate your support for our students and school and pray that we are all there for each other in this difficult time. “
