Clinton Schools Superintendent Addresses Loss of Elementary Student, Defends District

Tragedy again struck Clinton schools last week after the loss of an elementary student and the leader of Clinton schools offered up his condolences.


Wednesday morning on the WHOW Morning Show, Superintendent Curt Nettles told Regional Radio News while it has been tough on students and staff at CES, it is even more heartbreaking for the young girl's family.



Unfortunately, ten-year-old Rosie Osorio is the second Clinton student to lose her life in as many years and in recent days, the district has come under fire about how to handle the scenario surrounding her passing, especially on social media. Nettles recognizes his staff has seen those things and addressed that Wednesday....



Nettles calls the district ready to deal with any issues surrounding their students. He indicates they have books of policies in place. 



According to Nettles, during the school day, his staff is watchful and proactive in getting involved when they need to. 



Nettles stresses they address any concerns brought to them and utilize resources within the Clinton Police Department, school counselors, and social workers. He points out, many concerns that are brought to their staff have happened outside the school walls and it spills over into the school day.
