Dear Parent(s) or Guardian:

It is with great sadness that I inform you that one of our staff members, Beth Brunso, passed away on Tuesday December 26, 2016.

Her family is part of the 9-R community and her daughter attends school in the district. This tragic loss has affected us all deeply and we know you will join us in our concern and extend your sympathy to her family.
