Mr. Harmon's letter to parents of Hector's classmates

September 10, 2012

It brings great sadness to write this letter. We are writing you this afternoon to let you know that over the weekend one of our preschool students, Hector Curry, lost his life in a house fire.

We wanted to make you aware so that you may be better prepared if your child asks questions or has fears and concerns.

Although fears, concerns and questions are very common in a time of death it often times takes support from others to help the grieving process take place.

We will have counselors on stand-by at the school for any student who has questions. Please feel free to contact us if you would like for our staff to talk with your child.

The death of a student is never easy and it is especially hard on the classmates and peers. We will do anything in our power to help students grieve and help them through this difficult time.

Hector will be missed dearly and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The ACES family asks that you please keep Hector's family, friends, classmates and teachers in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days, weeks and months. Thanks in advance of your support of the family.

The ACES Family
--Robbie Harmon
