A community in mourning at the tragic loss of a teacher.
Martin MacNeil was a teacher at Valley Heights Secondary School but was also a Canadian World Studies Teacher and Football Coach at a number of other Grand Erie schools including Simcoe Composite School, Delhi District Secondary School, Cayuga Secondary School, and Paris District High School.
In a statement sent to myFM, the Grand Erie Trustees and the Senior Management Team would like to express their deepest sympathies to the MacNeil family, their friends and everyone connected to this loss.
Counsellors and other supports are onsite to assist students and staff.
Flags across the Grand Erie District School Board have been lowered in honour of Martin.
