With a heavy heart, I have some very difficult news to share. Many of you may have learned that two Snyder students, Zavier Jakob Dominguez, a Senior at Snyder High School, and Armando Carrillo, an 8th grader at Snyder Jr. High School, were killed in an automobile accident early Saturday morning.

Their family and friends will undoubtedly need our support as they grieve during this tragedy. Please remember to keep their siblings, parents, family, and many friends close to your hearts and in your prayers during this difficult time.

Even if you didn’t know Zavier and Armando, we know you might still have some emotional reactions to hearing about this. It is very important to be able to express our feelings, especially our loss and sadness. We want you to know that tomorrow, there will be teachers, counselors, and the Region 14 Crises Response Team available in the library to talk with you. Support is available to Junior High students as well. If you want to talk with somebody, you will be given a pass to go to the library where we have people who will help you through this difficult time.
