Dear Parents and Guardians,
There was an incident in the community resulting in the death of two of our parents that has been classified as a murder-suicide by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. The schools affected are Barth Elementary and Pottstown Middle School.
This tragedy saddens our hearts. We are coordinating any and all efforts to support the students and family affected by the situation and will continue to work with the Pottstown Police Department and other agencies involved.
While some information must remain confidential to protect the privacy of the students involved, we will continue to provide mental health support and cooperation for all students and staff.
Please keep this family and these schools in your thoughts and prayers,
Stephen J. Rodriguez
Superintendent of Schools
