    If your family has experienced a death or similar loss recently, the death of Mrs. Judith Sinclair may bring up feelings about that death. While this may be a normal experience, we want to provide assistance if needed. Please let your child’s teacher know if there is any additional information the school should be aware of so we can provide the support your child needs.
