Dear DJUSD Parent/Guardian:

It is with profound sadness that I write to inform you of the sudden passing of Jerred Vargas, a senior at Davis Senior High School. Our sincere condolences go out to Jerred’s family and friends. During this time as our school community processes this tragic news, our District has implemented our crisis response plan, which includes counseling and bereavement support services for students and staff affected across our District. Sudden tragedy can be difficult to manage and may bring up other hardship and loss. We encourage you to seek out support and resources for students and yourself as necessary. Information is available at DJUSD Mental Health and Support to help your child cope with loss.
This is a difficult time, but as a community we can look to one another for strength and support. Please join me in keeping the Vargas family in your thoughts.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your principal or school counselor.


John A. Bowes, Ed. D.
