We at Russellville Independent School District have suffered a terrible loss, and we are sad to inform you that two of our students, a second grader, Sebastian Davis in Mrs. Gilbert’s class at Stevenson Elementary School and a preschool student, Olivia Leek in Ms. Kasie Mason’s class at Russellville Preschool Academy, died as a result of an automobile accident in Indiana last night.
normal'>Anytime a student
experiences a death, it will naturally cause anxiety and confusion. Our school
counselor as well as counselors from the Green River Regional Education
Cooperative has been and will continue to be available to students and staff
throughout this crisis as needed.
In addition, Trinity Davis, a third grader in Mrs. Pedigo’s class at Stevenson Elementary, was also involved in the accident and is being treated for injuries at this time.
We have spoken with the students’ family and have passed along the love and support from all of the staff and students at our school district. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time.
