December 17, 2017

Dear Winchester School Families,

It is with sadness that we share the news that one of our current students passed away Saturday from injuries sustained in a sledding accident. 

 We anticipate that this will be a very difficult time for students and their families. A team met this morning to prepare how we will support our school community. This team included our administrators and counseling staff, as well as administrators from Keene School District who offered their expertise. We will hold a faculty/staff meeting on Monday morning to discuss student and staff needs and supports.  Our teachers will be prepared to speak with their classes about our loss. If you are concerned that your student may be particularly impacted by this event, please contact one of our counselors: Mick, Jenn, or Ellen. 

 We are posting a document outlining language and key points on the website under Documents: Parent Information.



Dr. Alan Genovese, Mike Duprey, and Val Carey
