Mooresville Police are investigating the apparent suicide of a male student in a Mooresville High School bathroom who was discovered early Wednesday morning.
Administrators notified parents around 8:35 a.m. of the incident and said the school would release students at 9 a.m. The school system's communications officer, Tanae McLean, said she was unsure of the student’s age or what grade he was in. She said the discovery of the student was reported immediately to an assistant principal.
Principal Luke Brown said a crisis team would be available for students. For staff, counselors would also be made available.
Students did not report to school Thursday because it is a districtwide holiday honoring Veteran’s Day. McLean said administrators had not yet discussed if class will be held Friday.
