8/10 Preseason Camp Cancelled

Updated Thursday August 10, 2017 by Jeff Nagel.

Good afternoon families,
The below message was communicated by Dr. Kenneth Graham, Superintendent of the Sachem Central School District:
"The Sachem Central School District Administration, Board of Education and entire school community are truly saddened to learn of the tragic loss of an 11th-grade Sachem High School East student. The student passed away from injuries suffered during an off-season football workout early this morning.   The district is devastated by this horrific accident and words cannot express the grief we feel as a school community. We extend our deepest condolences to the student’s family and friends during this terribly difficult time.   We have enacted our Crisis Intervention Team and support services will be made available to students and staff for as long as needed as we mourn and try to cope with this loss.   All athletic and school-related activities, as well as all community-based group activities, have been cancelled for today at all buildings districtwide."
As a result tonight's preseason camp has been canceled.
Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the family, friends, and all students in the Sachem community during this time.
