CHS is working through and implementing our crisis management plan. Counselors have been on campus for students, faculty, and staff, and will continue to be here for as long as they are needed. As we work our way through this tragedy, we ask that you please lift Victor’s family and friends – as well as his teachers and classmates – up in your prayers.”
