WAKEFIELD — The following is a statement from Superintendent Douglas Lyons:
“It is with great sadness that we are reaching out. Today we were devastated to learn of the sudden loss of one of our colleagues, Pamela Wood. Pam was a beloved staff member at the Greenwood School and Doyle Early Childhood Center and a vibrant and integral part of the Wakefield Public Schools Community.
“Pam worked with many students and families over the years in her role as a Speech and Language Pathologist. She will be missed by students, families and staff alike. Our hearts go out to her family during this tremendously difficult time.
“Our administrative team is working together to plan communication, counseling support, and resources to assist our students and staff. Counseling support will be on site at Greenwood tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday.”
The Wakefield Public Schools would like to offer families the following basic resources to help them navigate conversations about today’s tragedy with their children.
- Helping Children Cope With Loss
- Death and Grief: Supporting Children and Youth
