The Nashua-Plainfield High School administrative team on Sunday night sent out this statement to staff, students and their families:
“All of us at Nashua-Plainfield were saddened to hear the news this evening of the passing of Caleb Ulrichs, one of our 12th grade students, after a courageous battle with leukemia. We will still have school as scheduled on Monday, January 14th and will be providing counseling services for our students. We would like all students to report at 8:30 and we will run a normal schedule throughout the day, postponing semester tests for Monday and Tuesday until further notice.
“We all react in individual ways to this type of event. It is important to seek support and be together. It is also important to respect that all people grieve differently.
“Caleb was a tremendous leader in our school and community, was often the first to make others feel welcome, and frequently lent a helping hand. His impact on our Husky family and our community will never be forgotten.
“Please let us know how we can assist you and your family. We will be available Monday during the school day.”
