School letter sent to families

A letter was sent to families at William Mason School in Choiceland on Friday informing them of a “tragic event” involving a school family.

“In addition to our shared thoughts and support for the family, we are also sensitive to the impact such an event can have on other students, parents and the community,” says the statement from Trevor Davidson, the school’s principal.

The school said it has implemented a plan to provide its students with the opportunity to receive mental health support from trained professional staff.

“Those who do will be given the opportunity to express their feelings and pain,” Davidson said. “This is not intended to replace other professional advice or support from your parents.”

Families are encouraged to contact the school for the phone numbers of local agencies available to assist with further career advice.
