MASON, Ohio (FOX19) - A third-grader from Mason Elementary school died unexpectedly, the Mason City School district confirmed on its Facebook page Saturday.

The school district is asking students and faculty to wear blue on Monday in honor of Day.

Counselors and Cincinnati Childrens’ clinical therapists will be at Mason Elementary, Mason Intermediate, and Mason Middle School on Monday, the school district stated.
