Dear Reagan Family,

I need to share some extremely sad news with you. Today, around 2:30 p.m., several coaches alerted me that a student was found unconscious in the weight room. 911 was immediately called and our staff attempted lifesaving measures. Unfortunately, the student did not survive.

I struggle to send news like this through e-mail, but I want to make sure you have accurate information so that you are prepared to speak with your children about the situation.

The San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) is leading the investigation into what occurred. We have no reason to believe that any other student is involved and no one else is in danger.

We will have counselors available for students to help them through this difficult time.

If you have questions or concerns, please call the school at 210-356-1800.
