Student suicide Union City PA

Start Date: 2019/12/15

Description: We were asked at the Superintendent’s Meeting to attend a balloon release and reception for an 8th grader who had committed suicide. This event was attended by the students family and friends and was highly emotional. The weather was poor with heavy snow which limited the time at the balloon release but the dogs were able to have wonderful interactions at the reception. The students mother was very happy that we were able to attend and spent time speaking with the teams expressing her appreciation.
