A Message from High School Principal Tammy Hager

By now, you have likely learned about the tragic death of one of our very own students, Manny Lopez and a recent alumnus, Giselle Lopez, who are brother and sister, during the overnight hours in an unfortunate altercation. Although the incident took place away from school grounds, it has powerfully impacted our school family to its core. We view the High School as an extension of your family, and when something happens to one of us, it truly affects us all…That is the purpose of this call, to solemnly recognize the tragedy that has taken place…about which you will undoubtedly see more, and hear more on the news…and to let you know that we are here for your children. This matter has been addressed in class throughout the day today… The District has had, and will have grief counseling professionals available to all students and staff during the school day into the near future… And, a comprehensive listing of grief, domestic violence and crisis resources will be available on our District homepage. Once again, we as a school family are here to help. Matters such as these often prompt questions and strong emotions…and we encourage you to please take time to talk with your children about this untimely and tragic matter… utilize the online resources that the District will be posting in the near future…and please feel free to contact us at the schools at any time.
