Dear Parents and Guardians,

As members of a small community, you may be aware of a serious incident over the weekend that involved some students in our district and in which a GISS student has lost his life.  A police investigation is in progress.  

Should this incident impact your family or community members your family is close to, please be on the watch for possible signs of trauma that your loved ones might exhibit.  If you notice that someone is struggling, a brief guideline for families is attached to this correspondence.  I would also ask for your discretion at this time to respect the privacy of the family involved.

If you have any question or concerns, please contact me (   250-537-9332) or Lisa Halstead, Superintendent of Schools (

Kelda Logan, Principal
