Whitko Schools releases statement on passing of Ayden Adee

The Whitko Community School district is mourning the loss of 12-year old Ayden Adee, who was a student in their district.

“Yesterday we learned that one of our own students, Ayden Adee was found deceased. This is the worst reality any family could experience. This is a profound loss for our Whitko family and we that know many of you are grieving, hurting, and upset. As your students return to school on Monday, we will have mental health professionals, counselors and ministerial staff from within the community ready to support students and staff during this time of tragedy. As we grieve together, let’s lean on one another and depend on each other for support.  

Finally, we are encouraging every family to please spend time speaking with your son or daughter about the value of their life, and the lives of others and help them to know it is always ok to reach out and ask for help no matter what they may be experiencing.  

Please keep Ayden’s entire family in your thoughts and prayers.”
