Hart Remembers Student

Dear Thomas Hart Community,

It is with great sadness that I share with you the following information. Last night, we learned of the sudden death of one of our 8th-grade students, Ainsley Freeman. Ainsley was a wonderful student who embodied the Husky spirit.

Additional counselors were on campus today to help students deal with this loss. Counselors will be available all week, as needed. We encourage you to talk to your students and urge them to share their concerns.

Students have shown exceptional maturity and compassion. We are very proud of how our students have handled the tragic news.

In order to allow students to process this information, STAR testing has been postponed. Testing will resume on Thursday, May 10.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family. Please take this time to recognize those around you and take care of each other. This is a time for healing for all of us. Using the example set by our students, it is important that we continue to come together as a Hart community.
