Message of sympathy from Dr. Elizabeth Robison, Superintendent of Schools:
On Friday evening, we lost a 16-year old student from our Pocono Mountain East High School as a result of a car accident. I speak for our entire district and our school board as I express my deepest and most sincere sympathy to the family on their tragic loss. We pray for this child, the members of her family, her classmates and our entire community as everyone tries to deal with this very tragic loss.
We offer our ongoing support to the family. We ask that the members of our school community respect the privacy of this family, as the authorities have not yet released the name of the victim.
Whenever there is the death of a child within our community, our students and staff may have trouble grieving, understanding and coping. We will have crisis counselors available in our schools for as long as needed to help our students, faculty and staff.
Our campuses will be closed to media on Monday, January 28, 2019, as we try to help our school community through this terrible tragedy.
