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.

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.

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.
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

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.
