Calaveras Schools Superintendent Issues Statement on Leila Fowler’s Killing
Schools in the Calaveras Unified School District will be open Monday, two days after 8-year-old Leila Fowler was stabbed to death in her Valley Springs home.
Mark Campbell, the district’s superintendent, said in a statement Sunday, “As we all grapple with the tragic and senseless loss of one of our own, we do so knowing that we will be ready to do what is necessary to provide a safe environment for students and for staff, and to stand unified and strong as we provide whatever level of support and assistance that is necessary to help the family, our students, our parents and our staff process the unthinkable.”
Campbell added that counselors will be on hand at Jenny Lind Elementary, Toyon Middle School and Calaveras High School. There will also be an added law enforcement presence at Jenny Lind elementary and bus stops nearby.
