It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of a former Three Rivers High School student (age 16). Out of respect for the family, we are withholding the student’s name. However, because so many of our current students are aware of this tragic situation, we have activated the Three Rivers High School Crisis Response Team. Staff will be available tomorrow, Thursday, July 20, from 9am – 12pm at the main office of the high school to provide support for students. It is very difficult for all of us to face the death of a young person and we want to be sure we provide assistance for students and staff alike.
When we receive the OK from the family to release the student’s name, we will do so, along with funeral arrangements and opportunities to express condolences. I know you join me in extending our heartfelt sympathy to student’s family.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
