Last week, Patchogue-Medford schools Superintendent Donna Jones wrote a heartfelt letter to the district community concerning the suicide death of Anders, who was a fifth grader at Medford Elementary School in Patchogue.

The school district this week has made counselors, psychologists and social workers available to assist students from all Patchogue-Medford schools who may be struggling over Anders’ death.
