A message from Adair School Superintendent Alan W. Reed

To all members of the Adair County School community:

We are all shocked and grieving from the loss of two of our students and serious injuries to another. Our main objective, until more plans are made, is to take care of our students and staff members who are suffering.

Adair County Schools will run our normal schedule tomorrow, Monday, October 31, 2016 and counselors will be available for both students and staff. We are prepared to continue these services indefinitely.

I would especially appeal to our parents to make sure and contact your child's principal as early as possible in the morning to let them know if you have special concerns about your child during this period of grieving. We will make sure he or she receives special attention or additional counseling.

Again, my sincere condolences to parents, staff and friends for this very difficult loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out for everyone that has been affected by this tragedy.

Alan W. Reed, Superintendent
