Evergreen Public Schools investigates incident at Fisher's Landing Elementary - 10/03/14
On Wednesday evening, October 1, Evergreen Public Schools received a report that a student at Fisher's Landing Elementary was transported to an area hospital with a brain injury. The student subsequently died this morning. The student's name is not being released at the request of the family.
The family reports that the student, once home after school, indicated there was an incident on the playground and that may have precipitated the injury. However, no one at the school saw the incident, nor did the student report it to anyone at school.
Evergreen Public Schools immediately began an investigation, including calling in a third party investigator. The investigation includes a review of the weekly playground inspection reports, and interviews with staff.
A letter informing school families of the student's death was sent home today. Evergreen Public Schools continues to support the family, students and staff at Fisher's Landing. The district's grief counselors are on site and will be in place for as long as needed.
