Posted On June 17, 2021
Teenagers and teachers at a Mayport elementary school in Florida are “greeting each other with a big hug” after they met with parents, school officials said.
Mayport elementary School principal Eric Sibbald told local news station WPBF that the parents met with his students Tuesday after the students’ parents went to the school and learned of the teacher’s death.
Sibbard said they hugged each other, then went to lunch together.
Sibbenard said the parents told their kids that they will be together for the rest of their lives, adding, “You will be with me.”
Sibbenart said he had not seen any students in tears.
The school district said it had been notified of the incident, and a memorial service for the teacher will be held on Thursday.
