Dear Fremont Re-2 Community: 

The Florence Jr/Sr High School community was saddened to learn of the tragic unexpected death of one of our students, Ian Weaver, early this morning.  The death of any young person is a loss that, in one way or another, affects each of us. 

We have asked the assistance of the crisis team to help our students and staff deal with this loss. At FJSHS, we are providing support to all students and staff to help them cope with this tragedy. You may anticipate questions and a need to talk about the death with your child. The district will have resources available for you to access on the district website at www/re-2.org by the end of the day. 

Another website that provides helpful resources is the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).  Additional resources may be found at the link below: 

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s reactions to this loss, please do not hesitate to call the school at 784-6414 for assistance. Please ask to be connected to the counselors office.

Dr. Brenda Krage, Superintendent
