It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ms. Harris’ son Jessie. Many of you know that Jessie was involved in an automobile accident at the beginning of the school year. Throughout the school year he has battled injuries sustained in that accident, but passed away on Friday, May 12th. Today during PRIDE hour we shared this information with the students on 8C. We know that events like this can be difficult for students. Because of this, we made students aware that our administrative team, and our school psychologist, Dr. Kigin, are available to any students who might need to talk about how they are feeling.
Ms. Harris will not be finishing the final 7 days of the school year, but we are working with the 8th grade social studies team to provide support to our guest teachers and ensure continuity.
If your family would like to share your condolences, or help the family with expenses, a collection box will be in the front office where you can drop it off. Checks can be made payable to Altadena PTSO please.
Thanks for your continued support.
