This is Dr. Robert Previti, Superintendent of Mainland Regional High School, with a very important message for you concerning your child and an invitation to a Special Assembly scheduled at Mainland Regional High School on Tuesday, September 2nd.
As I am sure you are aware, a tragic accident has occurred involving five Mainland Regional High School students who were on their way to play a three on three soccer tournament on Saturday, August 30th at a Fund Raising Event at St. Augustine Prep High School.
The accident has emotionally affected the entire Mainland Community and has left one student in critical condition. We are, through this message, inviting you to attend a Special Assembly with your 9th grade child at 9:00AM, Tuesday, September 2nd, at Mainland's Auditorium so that we may provide support systems and information that you may want and need to help you and your child at this period of time. This assembly shall provide a transitional experience as well as provide a staff contact before we start our school year on Thursday, September 4th.
For students in Grades 10 through 12, we will provide counseling and support services in the afternoon of Sept 2nd for anyone who wishes to come to school before Thursday's first scheduled day. Counselors will be available from 1PM on Tuesday and will continue to be available for as many days as they are needed.
Counselors from Mainland, our sending districts, and county schools, as well as the entire Linwood Faculty along with Mainland's Faculty, will be present for the Assembly since four of the girls in the accident graduated from Belhaven Avenue School this past June.
This is not a mandatory assembly, just an opportunity to share our plans, express our support, and listen to your concerns.
We continue to stand United as One School, One Family, and One Community. Please take care and I hope to see you Tuesday Morning September 2nd.
The Shared the Keys program scheduled for Wednesday the 3rd has been postponed
