Bloomington North School officials say the death of one of its students is an apparent suicide. High school principal Jeffry Henderson sent a note to parents Wednesday. He said the student would be sadly missed.
“Any loss of life is difficult to understand, but suicide can be especially difficult,” Henderson said in the note.
The principal also told parents the school would have counselors and social workers available for any students who might need their services.
School officials acknowledged there were rumors the suicide was a response to bullying but said no reports were made to the staff.
