To our students, parents, staff and community:
All of us in the Morrow County School District have been struggling to come to terms with the recent death of one of our students. The loss of someone so young is a tragedy for all of us, and healing will require time and effort.
To that end, Morrow County School District implemented a crisis team from the InterMountain Educational Service District at Irrigon Jr-Sr High to provide assistance to students and staff who need it. Students and staff have been notified of support, care services and have been given access, to be able to share their grief. The district has also maintained additional counseling staff throughout the week. Morrow County School District has also provided information to families as well as offered grief resources to teachers and families. As you know, young people are impressionable, and we’re counting on our staff, parents, and community to help emotionally support our students and remain vigilant for any signs that could warn of impending issues of concern.
Please contact Superintendent Dirk Dirksen at 541-922-4016 with concerns or questions.
One of the many benefits of living and learning in a small community such as ours is that we support each other in hard times. Let’s do all that we can to help one another, and particularly to support the family that has suffered this terrible loss.
