In the letter, the student is not identified by name, but only as a senior who was involved in athletics and performing arts at Cedar Creek.

"This is very difficult for everyone", Principal Scott Parker said in the email, declining to give further details about the student's death out of respect for the family.

“Her spirit and love for her friends, family and school were undeniable. As we mourn her loss, we should remember her love for life and focus our thoughts and prayers toward her family as they struggle with this terrible tragedy”

Cedar Creek High School is making counselors available via Zoom to any students in need.
