Late Tuesday evening, we learned of a terrible tragedy involving a family living in the North Colonie Central School District, whose home was involved in a devastating fire. We will continue to be in constant contact with the Colonie Police Department and will follow their lead for any and all release of information, including the names of the victims. In this extremely difficult time, our focus will be providing the necessary supports to our students and staff. Since Tuesday evening, the district has been arranging grief counselors to staff various school buildings, and will continue to offer that support as long as it is needed. As we always do in a tragedy, we will come together as a district and get through this terrible time. As more updates become available to us, we will make them available to our community.
