CSD Addresses Double Slaying

An email message sent from spokeswoman Laura Rumpler of the Coeur d'Alene School District to staff members this morning:

“Everyone….since our school district is like one large family, we felt it is important to briefly share with you that the tragic shooting in Coeur d’Alene last night does impact our school district as one of our families was involved. This is a very painful and sad time as a community, and we are currently working with CdA Police as they finish their investigation and contact next of kin. While we are leaving the details of this tragedy to our police department, the district has begun mobilizing our crisis assistance team to support staff members and are developing plans to communicate with our students and families later on today, to help them process this tragedy once the information becomes public. I know you may have many questions – our focus right now is on supporting people and awaiting information from the CdA Police Department.  I promise we will share more when we are able.  Thank you” — Laura.
