With sorrow and disbelief, we share that today Peninsula High School suffered the loss of another student, in a car accident in Kitsap County. Out of respect for the family and close friends, we have no further information to share at this time.
The school library will be open tonight, Sunday, October 8 until 8:00 pm. The District Counseling team will be on hand to provide support to students and staff.
For Monday, October 9, Peninsula High School will be open, but will not be offering classes. Attendance is optional. Students who wish to come to school for a day of togetherness are welcome. Counselors will be available and regular transportation and food service will be available.
For those of you who work directly with students or have young people at home, here is a resource for talking about grief at different developmental stages: https://www.dougy.org/docs/Developmental_Responses_2017.pdf
Please send your good thoughts to PHS.
