A Message to Our Utica City School District Community


It is with profound sadness that I share the heartbreaking news of the passing of one of our Utica City School District students. On behalf of our entire school community, I extend our deepest condolences and heartfelt wishes for strength to the student’s family and loved ones during this unimaginably difficult time. Out of respect for the family, the name of the student will not be released at this time. 

Even during our summer break, we understand how such news can profoundly impact the mental health of our students. We want to reassure you that we are here for every member of our school family. If your child needs someone to talk to, please reach out to us. We are committed to supporting their emotional well-being.

This tragedy reminds us of the tremendous challenges our community faces, particularly our partners in law enforcement, who tirelessly strive to ensure our streets remain safe. We offer them our support as they navigate these complexities and also mourn this tragic and senseless loss.

Let us continue to work collaboratively, not just as a school district, but as a city, to confront and address these challenges head-on. 

Together, we can foster a safer environment where every individual feels protected and valued.
