Important Message for the School Community

April 4, 2012

Dear Boulder Prep High School Community,

Sadly, I am writing to inform you of the death, last night, of Boulder Prep Senior Mark Ho.

Mark was well known and well-liked by the school’s staff and his peers.  His death will have a significant and difficult impact upon our entire community. Our staff and district personnel have responded with crisis counseling and support for those affected by this tragedy. We have added two attachments below that you may find helpful in discussing this sad news.

Students and staff were notified of Mark’s death this morning. Our strong community has pulled together to provide counseling and support for individuals as they process this loss. Counseling will be continued throughout this week and longer as needed.

We will share additional information as it is available. Please know that we are here to support each of our students, and our greater community, as we all work though the grief process and mourn Mark’s passing together.

We know that each of you joins us in sending our love and support to Marks’s family and friends. I have been in touch with his family. As you can imagine, this is a devastating time for them.

Please contact me at either or 303.545.6186 if you have any questions or concerns that you need to communicate with me.
