This morning, Grand Forks Public Schools was informed that a parent and three students were found deceased in a private residence.
We have a multidisciplinary team of district and school administrators, counselors, school psychologists, and social workers working together to provide support and services to our students and staff. They are working through our district crisis plan.
Given the media attention this has received, we wanted to provide several resources to our families:
- Coalition to Support Grieving Students: https://grievingstudents.org/
- The Dougy Center: https://www.dougy.org/grief-resources/how-to-help-a-grieving-child/
- The attached resource titled, “What Will I Tell the Children?”
Parents or guardians with any concerns can contact their school office, and you will be put in contact with the appropriate administrator or staff member.
No other details are available at this time, as the Grand Forks Police Department continues their investigation.
