Dear Bluehawk Students & Families:

As you may already know, our hearts are heavy by the tragic passing of one of our high school students over the weekend. Terrell Starr was due to graduate with the Class of 2020 this June. The Jr./Sr. High School Crisis Team met this morning to discuss how we can best support our students and families during this difficult time. If school were in session, we would drop everything to make ourselves available to our students and families in their time of need. With schools being closed for the remainder of the year we cannot meet in person, however we want to let our students and families know that we are here to help them through the grieving process.

The following members of the Crisis Team are available to talk via email or a phone call and offer support at any time:
