The Strait Regional School Board extends sincere and deepest sympathies to the families and friends as well as the school communities of Richmond Education Centre/Academy and Felix Marchand Education Centre as they deal with the loss of two students and a teacher due to a motor vehicle accident today, Tuesday, December 1, 2015.
This evening, members of our crisis response teams met to finalize a plan to support the students, staff, families and school communities tomorrow and during the coming days. This support will involve school administration, guidance staff, school psychologists and other current and former staff members who will be onsite to provide support and counselling services. It is important to provide youth with the chance to talk about their feelings, concerns and respond to their questions so this will be the focus of our support in the coming days.
Our efforts are completely focused on supporting students and staff at both schools during this very difficult and sad time of loss.
