The Board of Education, administration, staff and students of the Bucyrus City School District were saddened to learn of the passing of junior Noah Lear during the early morning hours Wednesday, March 16.
“The loss of life is never easy, and it’s even more difficult when it’s a child,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “As the father of three children, my heart goes out to Noah’s family.”
The school district informed students at the Secondary School prior to classes beginning March 16. The Crawford County Trauma Team has been in the district since Monday, March 14, to provide grief counseling to students and staff.
“This is an incredibly challenging time for our students and staff,” Secondary School Principal Mark Burke said. “The Bucyrus City School District is a family, and we will do whatever is necessary to help each student and staff member deal with losing a classmate, student and friend. Noah and his family are in our thoughts and prayers.”
