Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the death of our dear friend and colleague, Marlene Dewar. Marlene has been a valuable part of our staff for many years and was currently teaching grade four. Marlene passed away on the weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, as we extend our deepest sympathy.
We anticipate that tomorrow may be a difficult one for our staff and students. Therefore, members of the ELSB’s Student Services Department will be available to support staff and students. If you feel that your child is having particular difficulty with this loss, please do not hesitate to contact the school counsellor or myself and we will arrange for him or her to speak with one of the counsellors.
The Funeral arrangements for Mrs. Dewar are entrusted to Ferguson Logan Funeral Home(Montague) with visiting on Monday January 11, 2016 from 4 to 7 pm. Funeral Mass to take place on Tuesday January 12, at 11:00 am from St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Sturgeon. As a sign of respect, there will be no classes at Montague Consolidated School on Tuesday, January 12th. This will give staff and students the opportunity to attend the service.
Marlene was a very important part of our school and community and we are deeply saddened by her death. I know that you join with me in sending our condolences to her family.
