Dear San Ramon Valley Staff and Parents,

It is with great sadness I share this update with you. Today, a freshman male student passed away after being found in the San Ramon Valley High School swimming pool. Words seem inadequate to express the sadness that many in our community are feeling as they receive this information. Our hearts go out to the grieving family, friends, students and staff. Danville Police are currently investigating the circumstances of this tragic accident. We will share more information with our school community as soon as possible.

We have a plan in place tomorrow to support students and staff through this difficult time.
