Belfast stu­dent dies

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

A young male stu­dent at Belfast Con­sol­i­dated School died Fri­day af­ter be­ing rushed to hospi­tal.

Kings Dis­trict RCMP and Is­land EMS re­sponded to a call of a med­i­cal emer­gency at Belfast Con­sol­i­dated School around mid-day on Fri­day.

There is no crim­i­nal­ity in­volved in this in­ci­dent.

The Guardian called the school but was di­rected to Parker Grim­mer, di­rec­tor of the Pub­lic Schools Branch.

Grim­mer said an email was sent out to par­ents of the school ex­plain­ing some of the events and how to sup­port their chil­dren. He also noted that the branch im­me­di­ately dis­patched an emer­gency re­sponse team to the school.

“We will def­i­nitely have a pres­ence there on Mon­day,’’ Grim­mer said. “These are very skilled teams that go out and have a good abil­ity of what they need to do. They are go­ing to as­sess the sit­u­a­tion and let us know whether we need to be back there on the week­end at any point.

“We’re there to sup­port the com­mu­nity, the stu­dents and the staff in any way we can.’’
