Dear Students, Staff andCommunity members,

In light of the most recent media release of the identity of the suspect in the death of Brooke McLaughlin RSU #38 will share that the suspect just finished his 8th grade year at Maranacook Community Middle School. RSU #38 will not provide any further information due to the continuing investigation and sensitive nature of this tragedy. If your child needs support based on this new information and needs immediate connection to services I encourage you to reach out to your child’s building principal, who can help connect you with our building based guidance counselors for services. Please see the recent communication concerning support and resources here.

I take this opportunity to remind everyone that services specific to Middle and High School Students are available Tuesday, July 26th at Maranacook Middle school from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm.

The school system is continuing to assess the needs of our staff and students to plan ongoing immediate support as well as ongoing access to resources. 


Jay Charette

Superintendent of Schools
