It is with great sadness that I share with the RSU #71 community that we have lost one of our very brightest lights.   

Belfast Area High School student Laila Al-Matrouk died today (Tuesday), following an accident on Sunday. She was struck by a car while riding her bicycle onto Route 1. 

Troy Howard Middle School will be open tomorrow, Wednesday, August 8, from 8:00am to 4:00pm.  There will be counselors, nurses and administrators on hand to help grieving students, staff and community members.

There will also be a candlelight gathering of people grieving the loss of this beloved child at Harbor Park in Belfast on Saturday evening August 11.  The time of the gathering and other details will be shared as they become known.
