Mrs. Shawn Van Dyke, a teacher at Wadsworth High School and in Wadsworth Wired, has passed away unexpectedly. Superintendent Dr. Andy Hill shared the sad news in a district-wide email on Oct. 18.

Beginning today, the school’s Crisis Response Team, along with assistance from the Medina County Crisis Response Team, will have trained crisis counselors available to meet with students and staff and continuing over the next few weeks as needed. Dr. Hill asks your child’s school office be contacted if you feel he/she is in need of additional assistance. You can also complete the Crisis Team Support Form linked below, where you will also find a list of emergency support services.

“We are sending this message to all families in our school community because it is hard for us to determine who will be impacted by this news and we want to make sure you are aware that assistance is available if your child needs it,” said Dr. Hill. “I ask that you keep the Van Dyke family in your thoughts during this difficult time and respect their privacy.”
