Statement from the Superintendent

Jan. 23, 2017

Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff, and Community Members,

It is a very sad day for the Schalmont community, as we mourn with the families affected by a car accident last night that claimed the lives of three adults.

Two of our current students and one of our 2015 graduates were injured in the accident, which also claimed the lives of their parents and a Schalmont Class of 2007 graduate.

Our hearts grieve for them and their families at this terrible time.

Our crisis team has been working closely with staff as we come together in support of all our students. Additional counselors were on site at the middle school today and were available to support any student who may be affected by this event. Support will be available throughout the week.

While we cannot provide any further information at this time, we hope you will join us in providing support and caring for everyone who has been affected by this tragic accident.


Dr. Carol Pallas
Superintendent of Schools
