It is with deep, deep sadness that I write to tell you that Mr. Myers McAllister died in his home last night, apparently of natural causes. We are all just devastated and working to let our school community know. We are also working to provide counseling for our students and staff. Please pray for Myers, for his family, for the children and for all who are grieving. May he rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him.
If you would like to pick up your child early today, please sign them out in the front office. Our plan is not to inform our students today; please have this conversation with your child at home. If you are unable to pick up your child early, faculty and staff will be on campus for the remainder of the school day. Aftercare will still be provided until 5:30 PM today. Saint Matthew’s will be closed tomorrow, Friday, August 30. School will resume on Tuesday, September 3.
