Message from the Superintendent

 Message from the Superintendent:

This is Superintendent Cathy Harlow from the Tyrone Area School District. I want to inform you about a tragic incident that occurred early this morning involving one of our elementary students.  The child, a second-grade student at Tyrone Elementary, was waiting at the bus stop and was apparently struck by a passing vehicle and fatally injured.  The bus driver on route arrived at the stop discovering the situation, contacted 911 and remained at the scene until first responders arrived. The driver and district personnel are assisting the State Police in the gathering of details in this ongoing investigation

On-site counseling is being provided by district personnel and additional crisis resources for students who are aware of the situation as well as staff.  We will share more information as we process through this tragic situation.

Our school community is truly grieved by this terrible loss.  Please keep the family in in your thoughts and prayers.
