UV mourns loss of school board member
The Unadilla Valley Central School District Board of Education, with great sadness, wishes to inform the community of the passing of Board Member Jamie Thompson.

The district's Emergency Response and Grief Response Teams met Monday morning to initiate a grief response for anyone in the school community who may need it.

Thompson, who passed away Friday, was well known in the school district for working with children, many of whom attend UV. Jamie was elected to the Board of Education in 2017.  Like the other board members, she shared a passion for making our community school a positive place to learn.  Her own children attend school in our district.

When the time is appropriate, the Board of Education will discuss its next steps regarding the vacancy on the school board. But for now, the Board of Education is solely concerned with Jamie's family, friends and the school community as we mourn her passing. The Board meeting that was scheduled for Monday, Sept. 17, has been moved to Wednesday, Sept. 26.
