With deep sorrow, we are writing this to inform you of the death of Susan Knuffman. Mrs. Knuffman was a fifth grade teacher at Meridian Elementary School and has worked for the Meridian School District since 1994. She was a great teacher, colleague and friend. She passed away early this morning after a short battle with cancer and will be truly missed.
Your child may experience a variety of emotions as they grieve for Mrs. Knuffman. We will have a support team of school social workers, counselors, and other support staff from our district and other area school districts available to provide counseling and support to students. We will continue to have staff available in the coming days.
We have not been informed of the arrangements to celebrate Susan’s life at this time. We know that this will be important to many of you and will try and assist with the dissemination of this information.
Please remember Mrs. Knuffman’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns. We will work together to assist our entire school community.
