Message from Black River Crisis Team

It is with great sadness that the Black River Community mourns the tragic passing of a BR Middle School parent. At this time, the name is not being shared on our website, as it has not been announced publicly. Members of the school Social Work and Counseling team will be on hand to help in this time of mourning.  

On Monday morning, middle school students will be given the opportunity in class to complete the following form to access support from our social work/counseling team, if they would like to do so.

However, any BR student seeking support is encouraged to fill out the above form. 

Our thoughts are with our BR family in this time of grief.
