Dear Parents/Guardians:

It is with great sadness that I inform you that near the end of the school day, we were told that a 9th-grade Delcastle student had passed away earlier today. Our prayers, thoughts, and sympathies are with her family and friends.

This loss may raise many emotions, concerns, and questions for our school community. School counselors and psychologists will be made available to meet with students on Monday and throughout next week. If you think that your child needs additional help, please contact a mental health professional or contact the Delaware Child Priority Response Crisis Service, at 1-800-969-HELP (4357).

If you would like information on how to answer questions that you might have about addressing the issue of death with your son or daughter, please visit

These are the actions that Delcastle Technical High School is taking:

  • Counseling services for students
  • Parent contact for any student that requested counseling

I have expressed the Delcastle community’s heartfelt sympathy to the family. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Clifton Hayes

Principal
