Dear Platte Canyon Families:
Today is a very difficult day for our community. The Park County Sheriff's office has recently released information bringing closure to our missing student. Maggie Long was a vibrant young student leader whose absence will be ever present. To say that she will be greatly missed is an understatement. Our heartfelt prayers are with the Long family during this difficult time.
Please be assured that our schools are prepared to support students and staff with grief counseling and grief support. We have additional crisis support staff on site. There are also grief support resources posted on our website at www.plattecanyonschools.org , click on Community or Parents in the toolbar, then click on Coping With a Loss.
We will continue to monitor and adjust our plans of support as needed. As always, I promise to keep you informed.
With Sincerity, Dr. Brenda Krage, Superintendent
