CHURUBUSCO, Ind. (WFFT) -- Churubusco Jr-Sr. High School senior Allie Basinger is one of many students sorting through their feelings after losing a classmate.
"I feel like a lot of people feel sadness. Like the teachers, and parents are definitely going through something," Allie Basinger said.
The Whitley County Coroner's Office said no foul play was involved in the students death, and his name has not been released.
Although Allie didn't know the student very well, it hurts.
The Smith-Green Community School District canceled classes Friday, but the Superintendent Daniel Hile knew in this difficult time the students would need support.
"We did have our buildings open today for quite a few counselors and pastors on hand to be with our children, just to provide any support to the community that we could. Next week we will start school with a two hour delay. So our staff can be prepared to bring back students on Monday. Again we will have a trained team here as support," he explained.
Hile said they care about all of the children in the district and will continue to provide resources for as long as they need it.
"If anyone feels they need to talk, or have something that they want to share, make sure they reach out to one of our staff, a trusted coach, friend, counselor, just to make sure they know they are not alone, and make sure they speak to any of us," Hile added.
