It is with great sadness that we inform you about the tragic events of one of our graduating seniors, Andrew Christoffel. With limited details available, the Kaneland High School crisis team will formulate a plan to support students and staff that will be affected by this news. Conley Outreach will be sending staff to the high school on Tuesday to be part of our crisis team. Most likely the gathering place for students will be the high school library. We are also concerned about the seniors who are no longer attending school, but who may be affected by this tragedy and very well may need a place to go in the next few days. We certainly welcome them to return to school for support.

Conley Outreach has provided information regarding teens and grieving at its website www.conleyoutreach.org. Students, teachers and parents may find this information useful.

Please keep Andie’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. We will update you as we have more information to share.
