Sad News for Our Community
Posted on 05/12/2021
Dear CPS Community -

I am writing with heartbreaking news. Jenna Santos, a CRLS senior and former student at Putnam Avenue Upper Campus, Amigos School, and the Morse School, passed away this week.

As Principal Smith shared with the CRLS community earlier today, “Jenna was a friendly, beloved member of our community that would engage in conversation with just about anyone in the school. She will be remembered most as a good friend with many strong connections and relationships at CRLS. Baking and cooking were among her favorite activities and she really enjoyed her two year experience in the Culinary Arts program. She participated in the Falcon Friends/ Best Buddies Program, and she worked with staff in the Copy Center as a Student Helper. She loved being with her peers and staff in the school.”

Our hearts are with Jenna’s family, friends, fellow students, and educators. We know that the loss of a member of our community can lead to a range of emotions that can be difficult to understand. You might find this resource from Riverside Trauma Center, Understanding the Grief of Children, useful.

Our schools have plans in place to support our students and staff. Take care and as always, please let us know if you need support.

Sincerely,

Kenneth N. Salim, Ed.D.
Superintendent
