Sad news

I got a call from one of my now former team members. A student in our coworker's classroom passed away last night. She was going into 5th grade and was the sweetest little thing. I know that the three of us are realistic when it comes to the fragility of some of our students, but this little girl died suddenly which was a huge shock. The principal still has my phone number in his phone so is also keeping me in the loop. I am just so devastated for the mom of this young girl. She was her world.

My condolences on the passing of your student, and prayers for healing for your school community and the poor, heartbroken mother. So, so sad.

I'm so sorry we have lost a few frail students over the years and it's never easy. I feel so much for the parents.

I'm so sorry, Kathy. I know how kind and caring you are--the poor family is lucky to have you "in the loop."

How sad for all involved. It's so hard to accept a child's death. How thoughtful of your P to keep you informed.

As a teacher who also went through a very unexpected death of a 5th grade student, I feel for you, your colleagues (especially the teacher), the students, the family, and the girl. It is a very hard thing to deal with. I don't think anyone completely understands what it's like to lose a student until they experience it. Words can not describe how it feels. It's very hard. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone!

I'm so sorry. I've been there - when you're teaching kids with significant disabilities you always know it's a possibility, but it never makes it easier. You, and the child's family, are all in my prayers.
