The funeral for Stoughton High senior David Wade, who died following an accident on Sept. 29, will be held this Friday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. at St. James Church, 560 Page St., in Stoughton.
Although held during the school day, Stoughton High students can attend the funeral if they provide a note granting permission from a parent/guardian.
However, students may not drive themselves to the funeral, Stoughton High principal Julie Miller said. Instead, students can either take school-provided bus transportation or be dismissed by a parent/guardian and be transported to the funeral by the parent/guardian.
The following statement is from Stoughton High principal Julie Miller:
In an effort to keep our kids safe, SHS is providing busing for students to attend the funeral on Friday. Students will need to provide the school with a note from their parent/guardian to attend the funeral on the bus. Notes must be turned in by Thursday at 9 a.m. No students will be allowed to drive themselves from school to the funeral. Students not taking the bus will only be dismissed to a parent/guardian on Friday.
