Sad Day in Hornet Country

It is with deep regret that we share news of a recent loss to our school community. Today we were informed that Madison Smallwood, one of our students, lost a long battle with cancer. We will always remember Madison for her smile and courage. Her positive impact on our district and community will never be forgotten.

Our district has convened a Support Team made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel. We have arranged to have support staff available on Wednesday, June 26th 5:00-7:00 pm and Thursday, June 27th 9:00-11:00 am in the High School Media Center for students, parents, and school personnel who may need or want additional support surrounding this loss.

 We have included links to information below that may be useful to you in helping your child at home. If you would like additional information or need assistance, please do not hesitate to use our resources or to contact your child's building principal through email.
