The following letter is from Jeanette Ball, Ph.D., Superintendent of Schools, to share one of our high school students passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, September 8th. Our sincere condolences and thoughts go out the family and friends of our student. During this time as our school community processes the tragic news and copes with grief, the school district will offer counseling support services to all of our students, staff, parents, and community. A Crisis Management Team from San Antonio will be on the Uvalde High School campus on Friday, September 8th to offer counseling for families from 9am-3pm.  If any of our parents or community members are in need of counseling they are encouraged to contact our family specialists at 830-278-6655:


Niki Henderson at nhenderson6353@uvaldecisd.net ext. 5510
Nikki Rodriguez at nrodriguez6375@uvaldecisd.net ext. 6112
Barbara Chase at bchase8526@uvaldecisd.net ext. 5418


This is a difficult time for everyone, however, the gentle support all school community members give to each other during this time is the first step in healing. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, your campus principal or your child’s school counselor.


With sympathy, love and gratitude,

Jeanette Ball, Ph.D.
