Cheboygan Area Schools Mourns the Loss of Andrew Hawver
Dear Cheboygan Area Schools Family & Friends,
Cheboygan Area Schools received notification on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, that Cheboygan Area Schools Inverness Academy student Andrew Hawver died unexpectedly. This news certainly is a shock and tragedy to our school family. We extend our deepest sympathy to the Hawver family during this most difficult time.
The circumstances surrounding his death are still under investigation by the Cheboygan County Sheriff Department.
This is a most difficult time for the Hawver family and many of our staff and students.
The death of a child or student in the school community can raise many different thoughts and reactions. Our district crisis response team has been mobilized and is ready and available for any student, staff member or family who may need assistance this morning or throughout the week. We are also grateful for the support that is being provided to us by our staff and local organizations in our caring community. Should you or your child need support as they learn of this news or the events surrounding this tragedy, please contact your child's school or myself Troy Reehl, superintendent at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have attached two documents that may be helpful (see links below). The first refers to signs or symptoms that children and youth may express indicating that additional support is needed. The second from the National Association of School Psychologists provides more specific support.
This is a sad day for students, staff and families at Cheboygan Area Schools. We mourn and share in the loss with the Hawver family and our thoughts and prayers are with them during this most difficult time. Visitation for Andrew will be from 12:00-2:00 pm on Saturday, January 28 at Nordman Christian Funeral Home in Cheboygan. Everyone is welcome.
Life is so precious. Take time to hug your child/children often. I know I will be hugging mine every chance I can get.
Troy Reehl, Superintendent
