The following is a statement by Hazlet Township Superintendent Bernard Bragen: 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of one of our middle school students affected by a recent tragedy. At this most difficult time, our students and families continue to remain our number one priority. The primary focus of the Hazlet Township School District is to ensure that we are proactive in providing the necessary services needed for our students’ well-being.

We will offer as much support as possible to all those in need to help our community deal with this tragedy. To that end, our Student Assistance Counselor, Child Study Team and Guidance Counselors are continually meeting with students to provide them with an appropriate forum to discuss any concerns they may have during this difficult time.

The Hazlet Township School District respects the right of children to grieve in their own way and will continue to assist students through this terrible tragedy. We encourage our students to continue to reach out to our counselors if they need assistance.

Any student or community member that may need support in dealing with this recent tragedy, please call 732-264-8411 (ext.1011) to access counseling services.

Tragic!!! Teenagers have to deal with so much peer pressure, bullying etc... Just horrible to loose someone so young with so much ahead of him. I'll never understand why these things happen.

The school is doing all they could for the students and teachers.

If this was a completely natural event, then that could be stated. If not knowing the cause may help us prevent this from happening to other youth. It can be used as an educational moment for parents and youth organizations to educate our charges.

Don't be stubborn, people. Everyone who needs to know, knows. Mind your business. How much can this really bother you? Find something less important to complain about.
