Saline High principal sends message to all families

This recorded phone message was sent to Saline High School families Wednesday evening. The crisis team at the high school decided it was better for the kids to receive the details of the accident while they were at home, in a safe family environment. Here's what they heard from principal Ben Williams:

Good evening. This message is from Saline High School.

Early this afternoon Saline Area Schools personnel was notified that the Saline High School and Saline Area Schools family had suffered a tragedy.
We were informed by the local police department that senior student, Sable Martin passed away in a very tragic automobile accident. All of our Saline Area Schools family is greiving of course with this loss.

This message is to explain to parents and students we will have our guidance staff available here at the high school as well as at Alternative Ed High School. We will provide support for all of our students in the main office and in the guidance office.

And to each and every one of you who knew Sable please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers. I regret to have to bring this message to you.

Once again, thank you for your understanding and if any student needs support tomorrow, don't hesitate to reach out to your counsellors, your teachers, your administrators. The entire faculty of Saline High School is here and ready to assist.

Have a good night.
