I am writing with the saddest of news. Sam Berns, a junior at Foxborough High School, passed away last night from complications due to Progeria. His amazing life had a tremendous impact on our community and indeed the world. We have been in contact with the family. Arrangements have not yet been finalized. Please check your email for updates over the next few days. Meanwhile, the Foxborough High School Library/Media Center will be open today (Saturday) from 2:00-5:00 p.m., and tomorrow (Sunday) from 12:00-2:00 p.m. Counselors and other staff will be available at the high school for any student, staff, or parent who wishes to gather to support each other and share remembrances of Sam. Additional plans are being made to support students and staff when they return to the high school on Monday. I know you all join me in expressing our deepest sorrow and sincere condolences to the Berns family.
