Statement by Essex County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Scott A. Burckbuchler

On Monday evening, Essex County Public Schools experienced a tragedy with the loss of a high school teacher, Mr. Marcus Peters. We are profoundly saddened by this loss and extend our deepest condolences to his family, colleagues, and friends.

Your student may want to talk about this loss and we encourage you to do so with them. Please know that there are grief counselors and other supports available to students and staff during this difficult time. If you believe your student would benefit from extra support, please let your principal know.

Thank you for your continued support of our schools!

Scott A. Burckbuchler, Ph.D.
Superintendent
