It is with a tremendously heavy heart that we inform you of the tragic passing of Emilio Rueda, a class of 2020 graduating senior from Chilton High School. We encourage the Chilton community to surround the family with thoughts of love and prayers of comfort during this time of bereavement. Additionally, we ask that community members, parents, and teachers extend support to the graduating class of 2020 as they navigate this difficult time.
On Thursday, May 14, 2020 we have invited a team of counselors and pastors to be on campus from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to assist our school community in dealing with this sudden and unexpected tragedy. We will do all that we can to help our students, staff, and community through this experience. Though our campus will be open for our students and staff on a come and go basis, we would like to encourage all attendees to wear a personal mask or one that will be provided by the Chilton ISD.
At this time, we do not have information about services or visitation arrangements for Emilio. However, the Chilton ISD will receive donations in his memory and will make a contribution to the Rueda family. Please continue to pray for the Rueda family, the Class of 2020, and the entire Chilton community during this difficult time. If you need additional information, please contact Brandon Hubbard, Superintendent at 254-546-1227 or Jennifer Sharp, Secondary Principal at 254-546-1224.
