On Thursday, May 22, Great Oak High School (GOHS) staff sent out an email to parents of Great Oak students to report a tragic loss.
“It is with a heavy heart that we write this email. Last night a member of our Wolfpack family was stricken by a tragic event,” stated the email sent from Jeannine Edlund, Great Oak principal’s secretary.
The email went on to state that a tenth grade student had passed away. The name and gender of the student was not released.
In response to the event, a crisis team was assembled to assist counseling staff in responding to students and staff affected by the loss.
If students need any additional support from the counseling staff at any time, they may contact the Great Oak Counseling Department at (951) 294-6450.
