February 28, 2018

On Monday morning our district learned that one of our very own students had died. This news
has been heartwrenching for our community, staff, and students. As a district, we have unified
our support system to ensure that we provide the comfort and care that is needed for our
students and staff.

The death of a child is the ultimate tragedy. The idea that this happened to a precious child is
one that we are coping with while supporting our children, staff and community. It is not easy.

The overwhelming outreach of support is greatly appreciated and has been very helpful. Many
school districts from Hancock and Waldo County have offered to send counselors to our schools
to assist us in our time of need. Sweetser has also offered their resources to us. Our
community has shown time after time that when adversity strikes, we come together to take care
of each other.

Thank you again for the outpouring of support and care that has been shown to RSU #20.
