STAMFORD — In the wake of a tragic car accident that killed one current and another former Stamford High School student early Monday morning, the school announced grief counseling will be available students and staff throughout the week.

Grief counselors will be available Monday at the Stamford High School Boyle Stadium from 3pm to 5pm, Tuesday in room 101 from 9am to 11am Tuesday, and Wednesday through Friday in room 638 from 7:30am to 2:30pm.

“People react differently to death. For some, many of the routine activities at school or at home may lose their meaning for a period of time. For others, even those who may not have known the student- but have experienced loss, a period of sadness may set in. Recovery may take weeks or even months; this is a normal part of the grieving process. We want students and staff members to understand that there is no right or wrong way to grieve and that each person’s experience is a valid one,” Stamford High School Principal Raymond Manka wrote in a letter to the community Monday afternoon.; 203-964-2265; @SophieCVaughan1
