ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (FOX19) - The death of a student has left a community and classmates to mourn the loss of one of their own.
Carson Rutter, a ninth-grade student at Anderson High School’s virtual academy, passed away recently due to a medical condition, according to a letter from Superintendent Scot Prebles.
Rutter also attended Mercer Elementary, Ayer Elementary, and Nagel Middle School, the letter says. The ninth-grade student has two siblings who attend school in the district, according to Prebles.
“This tragedy has devastated many students and staff members and may leave parents searching for ways to communicate with their children and ways to help them cope with their grief,” the letter reads.
Parents looking for information on how to help their kids through the grief process were directed to the Fernside Center for Grieving Children website.
The superintendent says personal counseling, crisis intervention, and support groups will be available to students at the affected schools.
Rutter’s medical condition that caused his death was not mentioned in the letter to families.
