This is David Alvarado, Superintendent of Hopewell-Loudon School. I am sorry to inform parents and students of the unfortunate passing this morning of seventh grade student, Kailee Smith. There is no easy way for a community to explain or understand the sudden death of a child. Therefore, as a school and community, we must depend on one another for collective support, caring, and mutual understanding of an event that seems incomprehensible.
Kailee’s mother asked that we make the parents and students aware of Kailee’s untimely death. Please keep Kailee’s family in your thoughts and prayers during these difficult times.
