Sharing Sad News About the Recent Death of a CISD Student
Dear CISD families,
It is with profound sorrow that I share the sad news about the death of one of our beloved students, who was a fourth-grader at one of our elementary schools. This student was sweet young man with a big personality who was a friend to all who knew him. Please join me in praying for his family, his teachers, his fellow students and his school community. As we will come together to deal with our immense sadness, I know you join me in offering our deepest condolences to the family.
During this time, as we process the tragic news, we will offer counseling services to students, staff and families who need it.
If your child is in distress, please reach out to your school counselor for assistance.
I also want to share some resources about helping your child through the grieving process. For many of our students, this may be their first experience with loss. The resources on the Coppell ISD website include several articles on this topic:
- Supporting Your Child in Grief
- How to Help a Grieving Child
I know our community will come together to support each other and this family.
