Tragic News

January 16, 2015

Dear Forest Hills Families,

It is with a broken heart that I report the death of one of our students, Lucas Van Sprange, a freshman at Central High School.  Lucas was struck by a car this morning as he was attempting to cross Cascade Road.

We have grief counselors at Central High and the other schools where Lucas was a student (Central Middle School, Goodwillie, and Ada).  Lucas will have classmates that knew him when he was a student at Goodwillie who are now in all three high schools.  This information has been shared with our staff in all schools in the event that students in any other school may hear about this and need support.

Thank you for your support of each other throughout this day and in the days ahead.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Lucas’ family.

Keep each other close,

Dan Behm
Superintendent
