SVSD in Mourning After Student Takes His Own Life

Parents, students and staff in the Saucon Valley School District are reacting with shock and sadness Friday morning to the news that a high school student took his own life Thursday night. In an open letter to the community posted on the district’s website and emailed as a news alert, superintendent Dr. Monica McHale-Small called the boy’s death “tragic” and said “our hearts and thoughts are with the student’s family, friends and loved ones as they cope with this tremendous personal loss.” “This loss is sure to raise many emotions, concerns and questions from our school community, especially from some of our students,” she said. “Our counselors and school psychologists are present at the high school to provide support, comfort and reassurance to students and staff. Because many students have been impacted by this tragedy, we have additional mental health support personnel present at the high school now.”
