“Oh my God. I have a 10-year-old myself and I’m wondering why the child in school? What happened? Why?” said Lamika Meekins. “I pray for the family. It hurts me to have someone do that to their child.”
We are terribly saddened at the news of the death of one of our Toano Middle School students. The school has been notified and additional counseling staff is at the school. Later this afternoon, we will communicate with families and make them aware of resources available to students. As a school division, we will support the Toano Middle community through this heartbreaking tragedy and provide any resources that they may need.
