We Are Heartbroken

Thank you, Lone Star parents, community members, and MISD campuses for the overwhelming support given to our staff as we struggle with the loss of our 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Runnels. Her classes released balloons this afternoon in honor of her birthday. We will work with the family to plan an event honoring her life at a later time when they can be present. I will share that information with everyone and ask that you help in getting the message out once it is planned.

Many of you have reached out to ask how you could best support the family during this time. Mrs. Jilek has a box at the front desk for letters, cards, gift cards, and donations.

Parents, your children may have more questions over the weekend. Here are some of Mrs. Krug's favorite resources for working through grief with children:
