(This note went home to all students this afternoon)
The staff and students of École Heather Park Elementary were saddened to learn today of the sudden death of Kallie Hinton, a student in grade 3. With her parents by her side, Kallie died in the hospital this morning of a medical condition.
The death of any young person is always difficult to cope with and hard to accept.
We have asked for the assistance from District Student Support Services to help the staff and students in our community deal with this loss. We are doing everything we can to help your child and our staff through this tragic experience. You may anticipate more questions from your son or daughter who may need to talk with someone about Kallie’s death.
The school will release more information as it becomes available and with respect for the family’s wishes.
Our prayers and best wishes are with Kallie’s friends and family during this time of loss.
Steve Fleck, Principal
