Dear Members of the BFA Community,
It is with deep sorrow that I need to let you know, one of our students died last evening. All of us at Bellows Free Academy are profoundly saddened by this news. Most importantly, our hearts go out to the families that are coping with such a difficult and personal loss.
Nothing affects a school community more than the loss of a young person. Such an event has significant impact and requires on-going support for all our students. Our counseling staff is available along with our friends from Northwestern Counseling and Support Services to ensure that we meet our students social and emotional needs. If your child is struggling in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us at 802-527-6571. NCSS can be reached at 802-524-6554.
It is comforting to know that we live in a community that deeply cares and supports our young people. Your kindness and compassion for the families affected is genuinely appreciated.
