Superintendent Angela Huseman, Wednesday afternoon posted on social media, that “It is with a great deal of sadness that I am informing you of the death of a member of our Senior Class, Seth Pauley.

She went on to say “This loss was communicated with our 9-12th grade students and staff this morning, but we know with our small community, students of all ages may be impacted. We encourage you to be prepared to talk with your child. Anyone that has felt a loss may be triggered by this current tragedy. It is important that all, whether children or adults, know they are supported as they talk about their feelings.”
