College Heights principal sent a letter home for parents and students Friday to offer support after the death of a student had occurred recently.
"We are doing everything we can to support your child and our staff through this difficult experience," Principal Halpape said in the letter. "We have asked for the assistance of the District and School's Critical Events Response Team (CERT) to help our school deal with the loss."
The letter describes the death of the student as sudden and assured parents there are support systems in place.
To that end, posted on the school's website it says: The Centre for Learning Alternatives, 3400 Westwood Drive, will be open and staffed with counselors and community resource staff Saturday to Monday (Oct 6, 7 and 8) from noon to 4 p.m. No appointment necessary.
This is a community coordinated effort between School District 57, Prince George RCMP, Intersect, Foundry, Native Friendship Centre, and Northern Health to ensure supports and resources are available to students and families throughout the weekend.
Continued supports will be available and in place on Tuesday and in the days ahead at CHSS for students.
There are no further details at this time.
