Diamond R-IV School District Families,
As you may or may not be aware, our school district has experienced a death of one of our students. This has affected our school and community deeply.
With respect to the family, the Diamond R-IV School District will be having an early dismissal on Friday, January 8th so students and staff may attend funeral services later that afternoon. The early dismissal will be at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, January 8th. I apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause your family.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 417-325-5186. I know you will join us in our concern and sympathy for the family. Thank you for your understanding.
The death referred into in Mabe's letter, was that of 15-year-old Diamond High School student Jacee Miksell, who was killed in a one-vehicle accident Monday. Miss Miksell was an honor student and played softball.
Her funeral is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday at the First Baptist Church of Diamond. Visitation will be held 4 to 7 p.m. today at the church.
