THE PASSING OF MIDLAND VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT TAYRON KIRKLAND - A message from MVHS Principal Sheldon Higgenbottom
Midland Valley High School Families:
As many of you know, Midland Valley High School student Tayron Kirkland was involved in a car accident Wednesday night. Tragically, he passed away from related injuries Thursday.
Our students, teachers, and staff have comforted one another as we grieved together the news of his passing. We are grateful to have been supported throughout the last few days with additional counselors. They will continue to support us through this time.
Tayron was motivated, a joy to be around, and really funny. He could lighten up even the most serious of circumstances, and will be remembered for his generosity, ambition and positivity.
Please know that children react to the loss of a peer in a number of different ways. A variety of reactions are normal in the grief process and can range from crying to withdrawl and anger.
As your child continues to grieve the loss of their classmate and friend, you can best support him or her by encouraging an open expression of feelings.
We have placed resources on our website that we hope will assist you in supporting your student through this process. If you feel that your child or family needs additional support, please know that we are here to help and will make counseling services available. Please encourage your child to come speak with his or her counselor, or you may reach out directly to arrange support services for your student as well.
Please keep Tayron’s family suffering such great loss in your thoughts and prayers.
