Message to our Friends, Families and Community

Our world changed last Friday when we experienced a senseless and heartbreaking tragedy, one that has rippled beyond the Marysville School District and felt throughout our community, state and nation.

Thank you to the countless people who have reached out with prayers, words of encouragement and to let us know you are with us.  The support from our community has been overwhelming. Thank you especially to our friends and partners here in the Marysville community, including the Tulalip Tribes, Marysville Police Department, Marysville Fire District, and the City of Marysville.

Today, we are all grieving the loss of our Marysville Pilchuck High School students. Young lives were claimed too soon and we send our deepest condolences. We ask you to join us in remembering each child who was impacted. We share in the grief with the families and friends of all, and we also continue to hold the remaining children who are hospitalized in our hearts and minds.

Thank you for all your support.  It is forever appreciated. 

Dr. Becky Berg, Superintendent

Marysville School Board expresses grief and gratitude

The Board of Directors of Marysville School District are walking beside you through the agony of the events of October 24. 

All of us at Marysville School District, including teachers, staff, students, parents and community members who volunteer or simply enjoy the sports, concerts, or joyful noises from our playgrounds, are faced with a situation too awful to imagine and for which no one is ever prepared.

First, our profound gratitude to the students and staff of Marysville-Pilchuck High School, the first responders, especially our Marysville Police Department, Marysville Fire Department, Snohomish County Sheriff Department, Mayor John Nehring and the City of Marysville, County leaders, the Tulalip Tribes and the support community which gathered around us since the tragic day. Together and individually, you responded heroically. Thank you. 

Second, our condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy, and all of those affected. Schools should be a safe and happy place for our children. Our time has failed to find a way to keep our schools safe from gun violence. Many of us know the families who have suffered overwhelming losses. Our hearts are broken with them. 

Third, as we begin this challenging journey, the school board directors of Marysville School District will do all we can to address the agony of this crisis for our students, teachers and parents. We cannot change what has happened, but we can choose the course we now take. We have asked all of our staff members in our elementary, middle and high schools to discuss the event in the most sensitive and age-appropriate way possible.  While we cannot shield our students from the distressing news of this event, we can work to provide them with accurate information and to convey that we will do all that is possible to keep them safe. We must continue to demonstrate to one another and the community that the real measure of our work is that our staff and students know how to love and care for one another.

Our commitment is to Engage, Inspire and Prepare our students for life. We have always understood that this vision is about much more than language or math skills, now we have no choice but to begin the journey one step at a time into our new future.  

- Dr. Tom Albright, President
