Dealing with Loss

Dealing with a Loss

Please reach out to someone close to you for help during this time. We all need someone to lean on and that is okay.

Loss of a Student

The loss of any student in our district is a devastating situation for all members of #onePlatte1. They are all someone's child, student, friend, and citizen, and we all share in the pain of this loss. Over the weekend, we had a student pass away and their time with us was way too short. This student made an impact on us all and we will miss them.

We have various resources available if you find yourself or one of your children needing support, comforting, and/or someone to listen to during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We will have our counselors at Wheatland Middle School (2600 W. Mariposa) on Monday 6/28 until 2:30 pm and Tuesday 6/29 from 8-Noon. Below are some additional resources outside of those hours.
