HOLDEN – A tragic situation during the holiday break for RSU 63.
According to the district, an 8-year old student died on Wednesday. He was a 3rd grader at Holden Elementary School.
The school had resources available for community members affected.
“This is especially hard. To give parents and teachers some words that they can use when they are talking to children and with each other – to really be able to be there to listen to the kids and whatever emotions that they are going through. (It’s important) to just be very supportive of those students and of the staff,” said Superintendent Susan Smith.
There will be a regular school day on Monday. Police say they are still investigating the cause of his death.
