In a District 833 announcement, the event is listed as being "in recognition of the very recent loss of students in our school community." Eighth grader Allison Trebesch died Tuesday; the circumstances surrounding her death have not been made public. The 13-year-old's death followed the death of an Oltman Middle School student who died by suicide in May.

The event will involve mental health professionals facilitating small groups of adults, teens and children who "need an opportunity to talk through their experiences of loss," according to the district announcement.
