Message from RSU #5 is attached below. The deepest sympathies of the Town's employees are with all those affected by the recent events.
Dear Students and Families,
We are devastated to inform you that we have received word that one of our students, Steel Crawford, drowned while swimming in the Saco River with friends on Friday, August 9th. Steel was a beloved member of our school community. We will remember Steel’s zest for life, his smile and his loyalty to his friends and lacrosse teammates. He will be deeply missed by all.
Counselors and Administrators will be available at Freeport High School in the cafeteria from 12-2pm on Saturday for any student, staff or family member that wishes to be together during this time to support one another. Counselors and Administrators will also be available throughout the day on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Please keep Steel’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
