|Parents and Guardians:It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of one of our students, Ekbal Badi. As many of you may have heard, Ekbal, her three sisters, and her parents were driving home late Thursday night, and were in a collision with a police car responding to a robbery. The family was killed on impact.Counselors were on hand today to help the students, and the morning was filled with discussion and remembrance of how precious Ekbal was to our school family. We will continue to ensure our students have the support they need as they say goodbye to their friend and classmate.
As the week progresses, we ask that you remember the five young boys who have lost their parents and sisters. We ask that you remember the mother who lost her son and daughter-in-law, and four of her grandchildren. Three of the boys will be remaining at our school and will need our support.
A fund has been set up for the family and donations can be accepted at Muslim Family Services at http://ohiomfs.org/ or by calling 614-470-2848.
