School letter sent to families

A letter was sent to families of 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 to the family, we are also sensitive to the impact such an event can have on other students, parents and the community,” reads the statement from Trevor Davidson, the school’s principal.

The school said it has implemented a plan to provide their student body the opportunity to receive mental health supports from trained professional staff.

“Those who do will be provided an opportunity to express their feelings and grief,” Davidson stated. “This is not intended to take the place of other professional counseling or support from their parents.”

Families are encouraged to contact the school to receive phone numbers of local agencies available to assist with further professional counseling.
