Merced City School District releases statment on train vs Juvenile accident

Sara Sandrik, Merced City School District public information officer releases the following statement to Merced Gateway News.

We understand that law enforcement authorities believe the victim was a 7th-grade student.  However, we have not received a confirmation at this time regarding the student’s name or if he attended one of our schools.  We are preparing for the possibility that he is a Merced City School District student, and we will have extra counselors available to support our students and staff tomorrow and for as long as they are needed

The safety of our students is always our number one priority.  Our schools make it a priority to speak with students about the dangers of walking on or near train tracks and how to cross the tracks safely, and they will continue to reinforce that message in the future.

Our hearts go out to the victim’s family and friends during this devastating time. We will continue to offer our support in every way possible as we learn more about this tragedy.
