Issaquah School District administrators announced Monday morning the death of a seventh-grade girl.

The girl attended Pine Lake Middle School as a sixth-grader and Pacific Cascade Middle School as a seventh-grade student.

The principals at each school e-mailed parents, telling them each school would offer extra counseling.

In her e-mail, Pacific Cascade Principal Dana Bailey asked the community to respect the “privacy of the family, and we understand at this point that the memorial services will be private.”

Both Bailey and Pine Lake Principal Roy Adler asked parents and guardians to be aware of how their children were handling the news of the passing of their classmate.

“If you notice any signs of grief ­— such as sadness, anger, irritability, anxiety, loneliness, detachment, listlessness, stomachaches or appetite changes — please do not hesitate to contact our counseling office for assistance,” both of their e-mails read.
